This reflective essay aims to discuss the importance of light technologies and health education in coping with the COVID-19 pandemic. The text addresses the epidemiological context and methods of preventing Coronavirus, especially quarantine and social isolation. In addition, the proposal addresses a set of micropolitical strategies that contribute to tackling the pandemic, especially light technologies and health education. We defend that, in times of pandemic, the humanization of care, dialogue and relationships of trust between professionals and users become essential. The reflections raised constitute praxis transversal to the work in health. In addition, they are characterized as ethical, aesthetic and political commitments in tackling the pandemic. These are necessary for the production of meaning and awareness of the actions imposed by health authorities.
