Abstract

There is a need to think of the best strategies to get the message across by redesigning health messages of self-protective behaviors toward COVID-19. The aim of the study was to identify the association of age groups in different settings with self-protective behavior. An online cross-sectional survey was conducted between July and August 2020. A convenience sample of 440 respondents in Tangerang Selatan city was collected. The chi-square test was used for age comparisons. The results showed that the main self-protective behavior of wearing masks, maintaining physical distancing and washing hands ranged from 79.5% to 98.6%, 66.7% to 79.2%, and 63.2% to 67.2% respectively. Significantly, young people were 7.7 times more likely to wear masks than adults in convenience stores. The findings suggest that there may be an important indicator of effective messaging in different settings, especially to support people to adopt and maintain these behaviors in the future.
