The study was conducted on the socio-economic changes of rural communities during the Covid-19 pandemic (Case Study in Malang Regency, Indonesia). During natural disasters, they occur more frequently every year. Natural disaster management is certainly different from natural disaster, which is managed in a formalized manner. The Indonesian government has issued several policies related to the Covid-19 pandemic. The socio-economic changes that occur in rural communities are an effort to tackle a non-Covid-19 national disaster for rural communities. Social change occurs due to social distancing policies, Large-Scale Social Restrictions, recommendations for washing hands, use of hand sanitizers and masks.
