Aim: The clinical course of COVID-19 cases and the severity of symptoms vary according to the case. However, it has been seen in the cases examined that it poses a greater risk for those with chronic diseases and elderly individuals. In order to protect elderly individuals from COVID-19, governments have introduced some restrictions. It is thought that the wrong evaluation of these restrictions may lead to attitudes of ageism. This study aimed to determine the relationship between society's fear of COVID-19 and attitudes towards ageism. Patients and Methods: This work is designed in descriptive type. This study was conducted with volunteers between the ages of 18-65 683 people. The data of the study were collected using the Fraboni Scale of Ageism and COVID-19 Fear Scale. Data were collected on 1-20 June 2020. Results: The mean Fraboni Scale of Ageism and COVID-19 Fear Scale scores were 67.87±6.15 and 18.81±6.16, respectively. The results showed a weak and negative correlation between COVID19 fear and ageism. Conclusion: Our research results show that the individuals participating in this study have a positive attitude towards the elderly. Individuals were found to experience low levels of COVID-19 fear. This result suggests that individuals do not care enough about the pandemic or that the measures taken are sufficient. A weak and negative correlation was found between COVID-19 fear and ageism.
