Abstract: The year 2020 was a challenge for the entire planet in the fight against the pandemic of the spread of the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. Romania was also part of this effort collectively, and the People's Advocate, in his capacity as constitutional guarantor of rights and fundamental freedoms, had to act constantly in order to preserve all rights, assuring citizens that whenever the exercise of some of their rights and freedoms were and are restricted, this is done entirely according to the Romanian Constitution, that is, it is prescribed by law, for the defense of other fundamental values and rights and on a determined duration, without affecting the very substance of those rights and freedoms. I chose as a research topic for this study one of the most important institutions in Romania, the "People’s Advocate Institution". The structure of our paper begins with the presentation of the People's Advocate institution, its structure and the main attributions regarding the human rights situation, taking note of the establishment of the state of emergency and the state of alert on the territory of Romania, which led to monitoring the application of these measures.
