The main objective was to psychometrically establish the nature of the construct underlying the symptoms of anxiety and depression associated with isolation by COVID-19 in adult women of Azogues. A quantitative, non-experimental, prospective and descriptive-correlational study was carried out with a correlational, comparative and predictive cross-sectional design. A simple random sampling was carried out. The sample consisted of 381 adult women (18 to 65 years old) from the city of Azogues, Ecuador. A sociodemographic survey was administered, as well as the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) and the State-Trait Depression Inventory (IDER). A descriptive analysis was performed by means of (percentages, frequencies, central tendency measures), a normality test by means of Shapiro Wilk (W), correlation analysis (r Pearson), mean difference analysis (Student t test for independent samples) and finally a multiple linear regression. The first model for predicting anxiety and depression was statistically significant for age (f= 12.66; p= .0001). Anxiety was not a statistically significant predictor for age (β=-0.04; p= .562). While depression was a statistically significant inverse or negative predictor of age (β=-0.27; p= .002). and for the second model of prediction of anxiety and depression was statistically significant for the days of quarantine (f= 4.61; p= .0001). Anxiety was a negative predictor of quarantine days (β=-0.16; p= .002) and depression a positive predictor of quarantine days (β= 0.25; p= .001).
