Human as a social being have an instinct to live together and interact with one another. Nevertheless, COVID-19 has significantly limited face to face interaction. In a local community such as Aceh, Indonesia, such situation makes the community somewhat indifferent as their traditions carried out so far are actually interacting closely with each other as a form of intimacy. This research aims to explore the problem of physical distancing based on local wisdom in Acehnese society. Qualitative approach was utilized with data from field study and library research. This study found that there still exist various local wisdoms in Aceh community which are parallel in the current recommended mechanism in avoiding the spread of COVID-19. The socio-economic ties are also still strong among the local population who believe in tradition which prevent the COVID-19 outbreak. This study implies that local wisdom which have been applied by Acehnese for years could be one of solutions to mitigate the COVID-19 outbreak.
