Brief Summary   COVID19 pandemic has affected all sections of the population alike. Government of India initiated various measures insisting on the awareness regarding prevention, control and promotive measures. The translation of these measures in the population is crucial in reducing transmission and control. In this context, Ministry of AYUSH  through central and state level institutions directs  to engage in this infection and disease control measures. In Tamil Nadu, Siddha system of medicine promotes both preventive and promotive measures among its population. Hence this study will be helpful in measuring the awareness and practices of COVID 19 among the  persons in containment zone in Tamil Nadu
