Abstract: Today the term new normal may not sound foreign to people Worldwide.This is based on the context of dealing with the Coronavirus Disease 2019 pandemic or better known as Covid-19, which has not been sure when it will end. Previously, the Indonesian government called the term new normal a new life order and then changed itto adapt new habits to be more comfortable for the public to understand. The adaptation of new habits has created the need for new public policies, especially in public services. In this case, it means that the government needs to reset existing public services to a recent. This analysis aims to summarize the management of public services during the adaptation of new customs in Indonesia. This research is qualitative with descriptive methods to overview the phenomena that occur in research subjects. The results show that the Covid-19 pandemic has created a new public services pattern wherein the new public services have shifted from the needs-based model to problem-based needs.
