This research was motivated by the policy of the Bandar Lampung city government in responding to controlling the spread of COVID-19 by issuing several regulations, including restrictions on activities and restrictions on operating hours for ksaha activities. The circular letter was issued as a follow-up to Regional Regulation Number 3 of 2020 concerning Adaptation of New Habits and Control of Covid-19. The circular has forced catering business owners not to get catering orders because of the ban on wedding receptions and also made modern mall/cafe/store business owners automatically reduce their employees’ working hours. The problem that has the potential to arise from restrictions on activities/events/parties and operations is that workers have the potential to be laid off, even if they are laid off (Termination of Employment). Termination of employment only has implications for the absence of overtime pay. The reduction in working hours of course also has an impact on the number of labor wages which in turn has an impact on the economic life and health of the workers themselves. The conclusions in this article include: (1) the impact of restrictions on activities and operating hours of business activities on workers in Bandar Lampung City affects the survival and mental health of workers when the wages received are decreasing as an implication of the policy of limiting operating hours; (2) Occupational health protection policies for workers during the COVID-19 pandemic in Bandar Lampung City, both from the aspect of government policies and aspects of company policies, still have not accommodated occupational health protection for workers, both in terms of mental health as wages have decreased, or in terms of protection from exposure to the 2019 coronavirus disease.
