Abstract
Background: The Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19) pandemic in Indonesia has experienced a rapid increase in cases so that the government has established a Large-Scale Social Restriction (LSSR) policy. The implication is that the social life sector of the community experiences stagnation which results in low fulfillment of life necessities. While this pandemic has not shown a preventive vaccine and cure drug, it seems that enforcement of the COVID-19 protocol is the most rational instrument to be applied as the best preventive measure.
Objectives: This study aims to provide an overview of the management of COVID-19 preventive action patterns for the people of South Sulawesi in Indonesia.
Methods: This survey uses a quantitative descriptive approach by taking samples in 4 (four) districts/cities that have scattered case clusters. Action pattern variables are described and measured based on 12 components of preventive measures.
Results: The level of preventive measures for COVID-19 was found to be 50.48% in the good category, 48.57% in the moderate category, and only 0.95% in the poor category.
Conclusion: The people of South Sulawesi are ready to enter a new normal life period. Thus, the government can carry out epidemic and economic control in parallel.
