I don't have rusty mind exactly but I've become really sloppy. No matter how hard I try and test, bugs show up and my colleagues find them. It's embarrassing.
If I were you I'd treat this as practicing something you want to gradually get better at. Don't binge it, do half an hour a day. Do a fun project like maybe make an app that connects to the catfacts apj and texts or emails your friends or something. It doesn't have to be hard, just get used to programming gradually. You get stuck for a while, work on a different piece of the program.

If you don't practice a skill regularly, you'll get rusty. I took a break from writing CSS for a little, and I forgot how to change the background color of a div

I too stopped proper coding since being hired as a sysadmin, so I started enjoying competitive programming in my free time to not lose the hand.
May I suggest you LeetCode, they are proposing 30 days coding challenges, on which they give you one problem a day of usually increasing difficulty and covering various algorithmic problems well suited for beginners too. If you solve all of them the same day when they appear you also are eligible for a final draft so a nice push to practice every day. There should be another one for June, but if not the ones for April and May are still available
