Re: Coronavirus

What boundaries? With the exception of a few towns in Catalunya and Aragón where lockdown has been reintroduced, people are free to travel all around Spain and haven't been confined to their own municipality since we got into Phase 3 which was months ago.

Re: Water bills

Ours have always been around the €30 for two months mark, for two people, and we don't have a pool. The bills have stayed the same for years, so yours do look to have been very low if they're for 3 months for a household of 3.

Re: Tax residency certificate

The local Agencia Tributaria offices are open now, have been for about 4 weeks, but you need a prior appointment. I got a certificate of fiscal residence via that route before selling my house, it is sent through the post and they advised me it would take around 2 weeks (may be longer at the moment ...

Re: Online shopping in the Covid world

One local business which seems to have done very well since they started doing online shopping and home deliveries during the lockdown is Russell's, the British shop in Torrox Costa. I normally go to Gibraltar once or twice a year to get such UK food products as we use, but obviously could not this ...

Re: Online shopping in the Covid world

Re: Online shopping in the Covid world

I used to like to order clothes online from John Lewis, if I wasn't going to be able to get over to the UK for a while to go shopping, and was happy to pay the 7.50 delivery charge, but when I tried to order something during the lockdown the site would not accept my Spanish address. On checking the ...

Re: Masks to be mandatory from next week in Andalucia

It seems to be the opening up of the tourist industry which has led to calls from local people for the mask wearing regulations to be made stricter.

I'm a million % certain he's not lying FAL, I've no doubt about what he says is anything but the truth. I know of people locally who have died, in care home and it's been attributed to Covid 19. I also know a doctor who had Covid 19 and was poorly in bed for 10 days at home. What I've yet to find o...

Has anyone here genuinely known anyone not in the health sector or in the vulnerable category (in a care home/hospital) who has contracted Covid 19. I haven't and have still not found anyone yet who has. And I meet a lot of people, a lot of people. This is going to sound very convoluted, but my sis...

Re: Masks to be mandatory from next week in Andalucia

I agree with you Fyfin. Although the details of Andalucia's new measure have yet to be confirmed, it is likely that masks won't have to be worn on the beach or around hotel swimming pools, nor when eating or drinking at bars and restaurants. All of which are situations in which people are going to s...

There are currently over 700 people in ICU in Andalucia.

Where does that figure come from? 4 days ago there were only 42 people hospitalised in the whole of Andalucia, 8 of those being in ICU.

Re: EHIC renewal

So, until and unless we hear that the UK will definitely continue to participate fully in the EHIC scheme, from what you're saying FAL, my understanding is that the UK will issue EHICs to UK pensioners already resident in the EU and receiving their healthcare via the S1 agreement, and also to EU ci...

Re: EHIC renewal

In the eventuality that the UK decides not to be part of the EHIC scheme after the end of the year, will UK pensioners currently resident in Spain be able to get one from the Spanish SS? Their rights as EU citizens are supposed to protected, but I'm not sure how this will work. They won't need to g...

Re: Coronavirus

That figure of 83 was announced by the Junta de Andalucia this morning, and by this afternoon it had already increased to 89, said Fernando Simón (due to continual tracking and testing).

Re: Public Transport under Threat
