This article discusses facts and typologies of resistance of Indonesian citizens regarding governmental policies on COVID-19. Government policies on handling COVID-19 which have been confusing, lacking proper socialization, and ineffectively-delivered communication have resulted in distrust leading to various kinds of resistance from the citizens. This research used a qualitative research approach through primary data from various news regarding citizens’ resistance to government policies on COVID-19 published in many online media from March 2020 to March 2021. It has been supported by collecting secondary data incorporated in some official documents issued by the government such as national laws and regional and local government policies. This article has found the identification and typology of citizen’s resistance that could be concluded into (1) cultural aspects of communal experience and practice in society which has been become the strong reason for resistance and (2) religious aspects regarding the understanding of the religious tenets openly practiced in daily life, for instance, in ritual and any other forms of performing the religious activities, has prominently shaped the citizen’s resistance against government policies on COVID-19.
