The Odisha government attempted to reduce the spread of COVID-19 through stay-at-home methods and social distance, which are anticipated to result in significant changes in residents' lifestyle, health, and quality of life. The purpose of this study was to look at the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic on these parameters among the local residents of Odisha.
