From the research carried out, it can be explained that the materials used in the Covid-19 Tolak Balak ritual contains the meaning of vertical and horizontal human relationships. The seven kinds of boreh flowers, frankincense/kemenyan, red incense/Dupa, rice ambeng, rice golong and chicken ikung show the relationship between humans and God. Meanwhile, boiled eggs, urab vegetables and plantains contain the meaning of human relations with themselves and with each other. This symbol implies that human in responding to the Covid-19 pandemic must be prepared carefully, must be able to adapt and share benefit to the environment, so it must be fair and wise.
