The Covid-19 pandemic has caught the attention of not only Indonesia but the whole world. The 3M movement, namely wearing a mask, washing hands and keeping a distance to minimize the transmission of tuberculosis is very beneficial for eradicating TB tuberculosis. However, this is a challenge for microscopists at PUSKESMAS Referral Microscopy (PRM) in educating and handling sputum of tuberculosis patients who are currently on medication. The purpose of this study was to test VisKomLAM 1, 2, 3 and 4 in bridging communication between officers in education on sputum handling for tuberculosis sufferers at every examination during the Covid-19 pandemic. The research location took PRM Tuminting, Wawonasa and Tikala Baru in Manado City and Telaga PRM in Gorontalo Regency. Analysis with paired t tests obtained a significance of below 5%, which means that VisKomLAM 1, 2, 3 and 4 can bridge education from officers to tuberculosis sufferers in the era of the co-19 pandemic. It is recommended that health workers always strive for tuberculosis health promotion in achieving tuberculosis elimination by 2050.
