Abstract

Magelang Regency is an orange zone area (as of August 31, 2020), so it is mandatory to make efforts to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. Based on the situation analysis, there are still insufficient efforts to prevent COVID-19. As for the efforts to prevent COVID-19 that have not been implemented, namely education about COVID-19, education on Adaptation to New Habits, and data collection of people elderly to COVID-19. The method used in data collection was through kuesioner need assessment for residents and Block Leader, and also from interviews with Block Leader. The results showed that the provision of education about COVID-19 was able to change attitudes and improve behavior in preventing COVID-19. Providing education regarding New Habit Adaptation has not been able to change knowledge, but providing education on New Habit Adaptation has been able to improve attitudes and improve behavior in the prevention of COVID-19.
