The tools used were structured questionnaire to collect sociodemographic data structured knowledge questionnaire to assess the level of knowledge and rating scale to assess the self-reported practice. The findings revealed that 7 % of ambulance drivers had poor knowledge, 57 % of the ambulance drivers had average knowledge ,22 % of them had good knowledge and 14 % of the ambulance drivers had excellent knowledge. Assessment of self-reported practice revealed that majority 90 % of the ambulance drivers had good practice and 10 % of them had average practice regarding infection control measures during COVID-19 among ambulance drivers.
