The number of cases of the COVID-19, as well as its mortalities and financial loss, are increasing; therefore, preventing the disease has a crucial role in controlling COVID-19. Preventive measures like improving the individual's awareness level and promoting the preventive measures for personal protection can be considered as valuable strategies to prevention and control the COVID-19. In the current situation, regarding the outbreak of COVID-19, in person educational sessions for the family health ambassadors cannot be held like before. On the other hand, because of the current situations, ambassadors are not inclined to attend the central health centers as well. Therefore, the authors recommend “Tele-education” to educate and promote the awareness and preventive skill levels for personal protection of the family health ambassadors. Tele-education in family health ambassadors in the prevalence of Covid-19 outbreak could be classified into two groups: 1. Self-care to the health ambassadors. 2. Self-care education to families through health ambassadors in terms of prevention and controlling Covid-19. Ultimately, as it has been conducted at home, Tele-education paves the way for family health ambassadors to learn and practice the principles of protection against COVID-19 at home with more convenience and concentration, leading to decrease the exposure and getting COVID-19.
