Use Cover.status property:


Cover.Active - the cover is visible, and the user can interact with it

However, when user is peeking, status property is Cover.Inactive:

Cover.Inactive - the cover is not active, the user cannot interact with
the cover, and it is not visible unless the user is peeking

With best regards,
