The rapid development of COVID-19 cases in Indonesia, as well as the spread of COVID-19 which has almost reached all provinces in Indonesia with the number of cases and the number of deaths increasing, has put Indonesia in a public health emergency. The high number of cases of death in Indonesia with CFR (5.0%) is very disturbing and worrisome for the community. Our review focuses on the epidemiology of the spread of COVID-19 in Indonesia as well as changes in people's attitudes and behavior during the COVID-19 pandemic. Indonesia is also infected by this virus. COVID-19 in Indonesia first reported two cases on March 2, 2020. On March 11, 2020, for the first time an Indonesian citizen died from Covid-19. East Java Province is the province with the most positive cases found. Because a vaccine that can dispel COVID-19 has not been found, in the end the Stay At Home movement is the most appropriate alternative to reduce the chance of contracting COVID-19 while maintaining cleanliness such as providing disinfectants, using masks, washing hands, exercising physical distance, avoiding crowds and so on. -Other etc. As a result, all activities are hampered, be it in the fields of economy, tourism, and others. Of course, many losses have been caused. However, seen from the obstacles that have occurred, there have been some significant changes that have occurred, especially in the attitude of the community so that they can continue their activities until these attitudes have turned into new habits. What is most visible from changes in community behavior is the discipline of people wearing masks, maintaining physical distance, and always maintaining hand hygiene. In essence, many innovative behaviors suddenly emerged during the COVID-19 outbreak.
