Bonjour Emily !
"Cela est" can be used but would sound overly pompous, and nowadays you would only encounter it when people are making fun of a "posh" accent, as no one would use "cela est" in an non-ironic way these days.
Bonne journée !
In other words, one will never ever find herself using the construction "Cela est"?
