As a major public health emergency in the public crisis has serious harm to the development of society, for the modernization of our country and the development of national governance capacity, governance system put forward a great challenge, the need for all social parties to take effective measures to actively deal with. Different from the long-term response mode of full government responsibility, citizens, as the recipients of influence, are subject to certain restrictions on their rights. At the same time, the government should also provide reasonable protection for citizens' rights and maintain social harmony and stability. Based on the analysis of the public questionnaire on COVID-19, this paper discusses the rights restrictions of citizens in response to major public health emergencies and the corresponding rights protection mechanism of the government. These contents are of great significance for the prevention of public crises and how to solve the crisis after it occurs.
