Anxiety is a judgement and emotional response to something dangerous. Anxiety is strongly
associated with feelings of uncertainty and helplessness. During the Covid-19 pandemic, there was a lot of
instability, decreased income, sudden layoffs, difficulty finding employment, and loss of life in a matter of
days after contracting Covid-19 which could cause anxiety. The purpose of this study was to determine the
level of anxiety about Covid-19 in the community of RT I RW XII Manyar Sabrangan Village. The
sampling technique in this study used an incidental sampling technique with a total of 110 people. The
results of this study indicate that people with anxiety levels based on age mostly experience severe anxiety
with the highest presentation at the age of 18-25 years (57.15%), while based on education most experience
moderate anxiety with the highest presentation in junior high school education (33.3%) and anxiety levels
based on work almost all experience moderate anxiety with the highest presentation as self-employed
(88.88%). It is expected for every community to continue to discipline themselves in implementing health
protocols such as wearing masks, washing hands, maintaining distance and carrying out Covid-19
