Many countries have initiated social distancing policies, Lock downs to slow the virus‟s spread, with the aim of avoiding catastrophic outcomes for national health systems and minimizing lives lost.

With increasing numbers of partial or total lockdowns in place that restrict operations of business and movement of the vast majority of workers, for many it has become impossible to work. Quantitative research methods were used for the study, and a sample population was chosen amongst participants who were single and in a relationship, female and male, with and without children, by using a convenient sampling method. The questionnaire used contained existing scales where the Cronbach‟s alpha coefficients were above the recommended 0.8. Out of 250 distributed questionnaires, 200 were completed and returned, giving an overall returning rate of 80%. The data was analyzed using IBM SPSS version 20.
