Introduction: COVID-19 has generated repercussions in the way people practice religion. In the face of this, a group of believers demonstrate fatalistic ideas regarding the origin and consequences of the new coronavirus. Objective: To adapt the Religious Health Fatalism Measure for the African-American Faith Community to the context of COVID-19 in the Peruvian population. Methods: Instrumental study, in which 764 adults (59,03% women and 40,97% men) from the Peruvian coast, highlands, and jungle participated voluntarily. The items of the Religious Health Fatalism Measure were culturally adapted through a five-step process: forward translation, synthesis of translations, back translation, consolidation by the expert committee, and pilot testing. The data analysis involved calculating descriptive statistics, performing a Confirmatory Factor Analysis, and structural equation modeling was used to analyze the goodness of fit of the original model. Results: The items of the Religious Fatalism Scale Facing COVID-19 show favorable evaluations about their clarity, representativeness and relevance, where all the Aiken's V values were statistically significant and greater than 0.70. Through Confirmatory Factor Analysis, a model with nine items distributed in two factors was evidenced (RMR = 0.036, GFI = 0.980, AGFI = 0.952, NFI = 0.981, RFI = 0.969, IFI = 0.983, TLI = 0.971, CFI = 0.983, RMSEA = 0.079). Furthermore, the reliability was acceptable (α > 0.78, CI 95% > 0.78-0.81). Conclusions: The modified version FAT-RCov19 shows evidence of validity and reliability to measure religious fatalism before COVID-19 in Peruvian adults.
