This study investigates the safety measures people take in multiple situations and their importance during the covid-19 Pandemic. The primary aim of this study is to analyze people's perceptional behaviour towards the virus. A sample of 185 people is taken from different from India. Descriptive analysis was used to examine the data. The investigation resulted in the perception that not wearing the masks, not practising social distancing, and mass gatherings and events are three key reasons behind the rapid spread of the covid-19 virus. Also, people are aware of the preventive measures to stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Over 50% of people agree that vaccine helps limit the spread of covid. Almost all people wear the mask correctly, covering the nose and mouth in all public places. They frequently wash hands with soap and water before entering home and office, go to the washroom, and before my meals. They avoid going to crowd places such as marketplaces, religious sites, gatherings.
