Infrastructures play an essential role in the development and revitalization of the economy of a country. However, the outbreak of COVID-19 and its spreading have hindered the acceleration of Indonesia's development. Particularly in Irrigation Projects, the Government of Indonesia combined the Cash for Work Program (in Bahasa: 'Padat Karya Tunai', abbreviated as PKT) and Accelerated Program for Improving Irrigation Water Management (in Bahasa: 'Program Percepatan Peningkatan Tata Guna Air lrigasi', abbreviated as P3-TGAI), which empowered the community during its implementation. As the projects involved many workers, massive efforts are needed to prevent the spreading of COVID-19. The Ministry of Public Works and Housing (PW-H) issued ministerial instruction number 2-year 2020 regarding the health protocol to avoid spreading COVID-19. The study's objective is to determine the implementation of the Ministry's instruction in small-scale irrigation projects. Primary and secondary data were used. A set of questionnaires was distributed to 22 respondents to assess the reliability perception and implementation of Ministry Instructions at the project site. This study used Descriptive Statistics, Inference Statistics, Gap, and Quadrant Analysis methods to describe whether the instructions were well-implemented. The results of this study show that the most significant gap in reliability perception and implementation is the instruction to "Measure the body temperature of all workers and employees," with a value of 0.64, which shows a significant difference. Based on quadrant analysis, the position of this instruction is also in quadrant A, which means that this instruction is a top priority for attention in the project.
