Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a new disease whose transmission process is very fast, has not found a cure yet, and leads to death. This triggers social stigma in the community. From a health perspective, social stigma is a negative relationship between a person, a group of people sharing certain characteristics and diseases. This stigma encourages concealment to avoid discrimination, prevents immediately seeking health care, and prevents the adoption of healthy behavior. This condition affected the handling of the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic disease. The ostracism having occurred lately is a condition of excessive fear from the community towards positive patients with Covid-19. This condition is caused by a tendency for fear of something and connecting a great sense of worry to different groups. This is a fact existing in the current social order. Although People in Monitoring (ODP) and Patients in Oversight (PDP) have carried out independent isolation, some people still consider that suffering from this disease is a disgrace, and some even close access in and out of the house during independent isolation. This is contrary to the government’s recommendations which should work together to fight against Covid-19. Therefore, this article seeks to discuss how innovation and collaboration must be carried out to erase the social stigma arising in the midst of society related to Covid-19. The final results of this article relate to innovations and collaborations carried out to combat and eliminate, namely through the Advocacy, Coordination and Education activities of Kelet District Hospital to ensure social resilience, through periodic monitoring and home visite with relevant stakeholders.
