COVID-19 has been spreading rapidly and turning Jakarta into the epicenter of COVID-19 deployment. Based on data as of 10 April 2020, there are 50 urban villages in Jakarta whose areas are in free status or do not have confirmed cases of COVID-19, one of which is Kalianyar, Sub-district of Tambora, West Jakarta, which is the most populous urban village in Jakarta and even the most populous in Southeast Asia. This study aims to determine the efforts implemented by people in the urban village of Kalianyar to encounter and survive the spread of COVID-19 in the region. This study was conducted using a qualitative approach through descriptive analysis by in-depth interviews and collecting data, identified the efforts to encounter COVID-19 from the people of Kalianyar. Based on the unit analysis in the science of human settlements (Ekistics) on elements of health behavior and control systems, indicated that Kalianyar Kelurahan implemented efforts through changes in behavior and control in each ekistics unit supported by the example from the headman of Kalianyar. Therefore, Kalianyar had formerly carried out a "New Normal"habit, which was practically implemented according to the people in Kalianyar. The adaptation efforts of the Kalianyar can be an essential lesson for other densely populated areas or urban villages in honing sensitivity to respond to problems that arise due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
