This type of research is a quantitative study using a pre-experimental one group pre-post test design. The number of samples is 64 people who are determined by the total sampling technique.

The results showed that the average knowledge of respondents before being given health education about COVID-19 was 2.10 and after being given health education it was 1.04. As for the behavior of respondents before being given health education the average was 1.46 and after being given health education it was 1.06.
