Crisis management is one of the government’s primary responsibilities, and it therefore needs to be properly administered. The purpose of this research is to analyze the ability of local government to handle crisis management during the COVID-19 pandemic in South Sulawesi, Indonesia. This study also determines the numerous risks that interfered with crisis management in response to handling COVID-19. The coordination of provincial government was carried out with various stakeholders – local government, the army, the police, and universities – to properly manage the crisis. These results show that the strongest aspects of local government regulation in response to the COVID-19 pandemic were control and surveillance, while the weakest element was auditing.
