Abstract

WHO recommends washing hands frequently, staying away from crowds, maintaining a safe distance, wearing masks, applying cough and sneeze ethics, as well as keeping the sick isolated and quarantining those in close contact to prevent Covid-19 transmission. The efforts to prevent the transmission of new cases during the adaptation to the new habits with the implementation of strict health protocols need massive enforcement. It was an analytic observational study with a cross-sectional approach. The study was conducted in East Java with 1,564 participants involved by simple random sampling technique. The dependent variable was preventive behavior against Covid-19 transmission. The independent variables included attitudes, knowledge, family support, and health worker support. The data were collected by using a questionnaire and analyzed with multiple linear regression. The study demonstrated that attitudes (B= 0.07, SE= 0.04, p= 0.034), knowledge (B= 0.08, SE= 0.04, p= 0.050), family support (B= 0.12, SE= 0.05, p= 0.012), and health workers support (B= 0.37, SE= 0.03, p<0.001) increase the preventive behavior against Covid-19 transmission. The value of R2 = 0.388, marked that the variables of knowledge, family support, and health worker support simultaneously pose an influence of 38.8% on preventive behavior against Covid-19 transmission. While the remaining 61.2% was influenced by other variables not examined.
