The COVID-19 virus, which is transmitted very quickly through the respiratory tract, has affected the whole world. Methods such as isolation and quarantine have been applied to prevent the spread of the virus. In these processes, restrictions made to protect public health can be effective in individuals' fear mechanisms. This study was planned in order to determine the psychological resilience levels and COVID-19 fear levels of individuals and to determine other factors affecting these variables. Before the research, it was started by obtaining "Permission for COVID-19 Studies" from the Ministry of Health and "Ethics Committee Approval" from Siirt University Health Sciences Board. 467 people between the ages of 18-65 participated in the study during the 2020 COVID-19 (AugustSeptember) pandemic process. In the study, the Fear of COVID-19 Scale and the Psychological Resilience Scale were used. In the analysis of the data, t-test, correlation analysis and simple linear regression analysis were used. In line with the results obtained within the scope of the research, it was determined that there is a significant difference between the variables within the groups. At the same time, it was determined that the independent variable (psychological resilience) predicted the dependent variable (fear of covid-19) at a significant level and explained 6% of the variance.
