Background: Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV2) virus. This disease is transmitted from human to human, where most of (COVID-19) infected people experience mild to moderate respiratory disease and recover without requiring special care. Health education is a top priority and is one of the effective nursing interventions to improve knowledge level and public awareness about the importance of correct understanding regarding COVID-19. The researcher was aimed to analyze knowledge level differences of Posbindu (Integrated guided care) participants in Puskesmas (Community Health Center) Gesi regarding COVID-19 disease before and after the implementation of health education.

Methods: It was a queasy experimental quantitative research with a one-group pretest-post-test control design. There were 40 participants with ages ranging from 15 to 50 years old.

Result: The Posbindu participants' knowledge level about Covid-19 before receiving health education was categorized as poor. Meanwhile, Posbindu participants' knowledge level about Covid-19 before receiving health education was average. The Independent Sample T-Test showed that the sig. (2-tailed) value was 0.009 <0.05, then Ho was rejected, and Ha was accepted. Therefore, it could be concluded that there are differences in Posbindu participants' knowledge level before and after being given the health education about Covid-19 in Puskesmas Gesi.

Conclusion: The health education given in Puskesmas Gesi affects Posbindu participants' knowledge level about Covid-19. It is hoped that the public health center regularly puts more consent to increase the community's knowledge about COVID-19.
