This study aimed to examine the management of family disease in Covid 19 patients. 204 families with patients recovered from Covid-19 were selected based on purposive and voluntary sampling and responded to family disease management (FDM) scale. The CFA results showed that the 30-items scale provided a good fit. Cronbach alpha test indicated 0.95 for the total scale and higher 0.89 in three subscales. Three factors were showed family support, family normalization, and family participation. The FDM scale could be a valid and reliable scale for determining the function of the family in the management of Covid-19 for this population.
