Since the first COVID-19 case in Indonesia was announced on 2nd March 2020, the spread of COVID-19 has occurred so rapidly that Indonesia is listed as the country with the highest number of deaths in Southeast Asia. If humans limit interactions with each other, the process of human-to-human transmission can be suppressed until a solution or treatment can be found. For this reason, many countries have implemented work from home policies, restrictions on interaction between workers, and others. However, the authors have yet to meet research that focuses on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on activities in a construction project. Seven activities or stages common to construction projects are examined to determine whether the COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on the implementation of these activities. From the research it is known that construction project activities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic are procurement activities, quantity surveying, and tenders because it takes time to adjust to the work from home rhythm. After workers are used to work from home, such activities tend to run well, as before the pandemic. Scheduling and implementation activities are impacted on several projects. Non-vital projects and private projects experienced delays and shifting of project completion dates due to lockdown regulations that limit the number of workers and delay delivery of materials
