Health is a human right, so it is the state's obligation to fulfill it. The 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia and Act No. 36 of 2009 concerning Health have provided health insurance for every citizen. Currently, there is a COVID-19 pandemic that has hit countries in the world, including Indonesia. Various policies have been taken to overcome the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Indonesia already has Act No. 4 of 1984 concerning Outbreaks of Infectious Diseases, and Act No. 6 of 2018 concerning Health Quarantine. The government has issued policies to prevent the spread of COVID-19, namely the Large-Scale Social Restriction (PSBB) and the Enforcement of Community Activity Restrictions (PPKM). But in reality, the spread of the Covid-19 virus has not been resolved, even more people are infected, not even a few have died. Therefore, legal awareness of the community and law enforcement is needed to be able to implement policies so that the spread of the Covid-29 virus ends soon.
