Total lockdown during the pandemic of Covid-19 in 2020 forced companies to remote work mode. For some people, this transition was harder than for others due to a lack of experience in telework. So, the goal of this research is to study how global lockdown and mandatory remote work affect people’s life, especially in maintaining work-life balance. The methodology includes a survey, based on a literature review and previous studies in this field. Analysis of the result was done by ANOVA test and regression analysis. The obtained results show that previous experience in telework affects the level of loneliness, isolation, feeling lack of face-to-face interaction with colleagues, feeling of limited possibilities to demonstrate exceptional skills or extraordinary work results, problems with self-organization and following the work routine, and worryness about future. The following WHO recommendations influence only at the level of isolation and feeling of limited possibilities to demonstrate exceptional skills or extraordinary work results. Therefore, future studies on Covid-19 effect on humans’ life in a longer perspective is needed.
