The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic poses a serious health
threat among Indonesian healthcare workers. As front-line workers, they
were facing higher risk due to the prolonged exposure of severe acute
respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). This study aimed to
explore various factors affecting perceived risk among healthcare
professionals. A cross-sectional study was conducted among health
practitioners who met the inclusion criteria of being over the age of 17 years
and resided in Indonesia. This study was conducted during the early "new
normal behavior" period from April to July 2020. The sampling technique
was convenience sampling which involved collecting data through the online
questionnaire. The data were analyzed through the Spearman correlation
method using SPSS version 22.0. A total of 248 respondents were included
in the final analysis. Overall, age (p=0.017) and health status (p=0.001)
significantly affected the COVID-19 risk perception among healthcare
workers. Therefore, comprehensive COVID-19 risk communication should
be established to optimize health behavior and crisis control management
among healthcare workers
