The Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on society so that people face various problems, one of which is community resilience. Community resilience is the ability of the community to tolerate disturbances without falling into different conditions so that the community becomes resilient and withstands shocks and rebuilds its own condition. Strengthening community resilience ensures that individuals have the capacity to anticipate, prevent, adapt and reduce various shocks, stresses, risks, and uncertainties resulting from the pandemic. One of the strategic components in community resilience is risk communication. Risk communication includes individual components and media used to convey information regarding the development of pandemic risk which is carried out regularly and periodically. During the Covid-19 pandemic, people are faced with a large amount of information that is varied and increasingly contradictory. This requires greater effort to navigate and the information generated has the potential to have an impact on community resilience. The purpose of this study is to analyze the relationship of variables that support risk communication including trust in circulating information, information transparency, perceptions of the benefits of information from the government, effective communication strategies, and information validity with community resilience. The design of this study was cross-sectional using quantitative data. Data collection is in the form of surveys conducted online through survey application platforms and social media. Instruments and measurements of resilience using the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale. The results show that information transparency has a relationship with community resilience. Information transparency is able to create effective information delivery in social policies so as to reduce information gaps and contribute substantially to risk communication. Transparency of information is a source of information, especially the government in generating public confidence in the information submitted. The information can be in the form of pandemic control and prevention efforts which include health protocols and resilience efforts.
