COVID-19 is a contagious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2. This study aims to look at factors related to the lifestyle of people on the island of Sumatra during the COVID-19 pandemic. This study used a cross-sectional design with 2020 respondents with age criteria over 16 who lived on the island of Sumatra. The questionnaire in this study was in the form of an e-survey using Google form media and distributed through social media (WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram). Chi-square test was used to analyze the relationship between lifestyle factors in men and women with a level of P < 0.05 and the logistic regression analysis test. The results of this study indicate that there was significant relationship between men and women on smoking behavior (odds ratio [OR] = 142.286; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 10.134–1997.783), duration of physical activity (OR = 0.473; 95% CI: 0.359–0.624), food consumption (OR = 3.356; 95% CI: 1.672–6.737), salt consumption (OR = 1.596; 95% CI: 1.131–2.251), oil consumption (OR = 1.463; 95% CI: 1.043–2.050), water consumption (OR = 0.652; 95% CI: 0.475–0.895), and hand washing (OR = 4.130; 95% CI: 1.567–10.883). The community is expected to reduce smoking habits, adopt a healthy lifestyle by doing physical activity, consuming salt, oil, and air according to balanced nutrition and implementing hand habits to prevent the impact of COVID-19.
