This article examines the Indonesian government's permissible limitation policies, specifically the right to be free, the right to health, and food, in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Some residents have lost their livelihoods because of government policies imposing Large-Scale Social restrictions (PSBB) and Herd Immunity, particularly odd working jobs, day laborers, and online motorcycle taxi drivers in several Indonesian regions. Failure to provide a means of subsistence jeopardizes a worker's right to food. Large-Scale Social Restriction (PSBB) and herd immunity, which does not offer food and vaccines to those in need, limits illegal human rights, / violates human rights. Are the PSBB and Herd Immunity policies following the Human Rights Limitation Principles, and do they affect human rights? This qualitative study employs a desk research collection method and descriptive analyses in addressing these issues. Secondary data COVID-19 and International Human Rights Restriction-related materials from international, national reports, books, journals, and online sources are used in this study. PSBB and Herd Immunity are disproportionate limitations on human rights because they conflict with other human rights. If the government only implements the PSBB and Herd Immunity without providing vaccines, particularly to the vulnerable, it violates human rights. The PSBB and Herd Immunity, which restrict people's ability to move, exercise other freedoms, and get a vaccination, are incompatible with International Human Rights Limitation Principles, especially the health and legal conditions. Keywords: Herd Immunity; limitation; human rights crisis; policy.
