Hi we are supposed to be coming to our holiday home in Aigues in October.

We keep hearing that cases are rising but we aren’t sure about our area ? 

Does anybody know the situation in and around Aigues and El Campelo? 

We know we will have to quarantine on our return to the Uk but really don’t want to be putting ourselves of any greater risk than necessary. 
On the news they don’t seem to mention fatalities arising from COVID in Spain just positive tests. 

Any further information would be gratefully received to help us make an informed decision as to come or not 

Thanks In adva

Andy

I hear comments a lot on this forum about how safe Spain is compared to the Uk unfortunately the numbers don’t stack up Spain has over 12000 cases again today

In total 584000 which is a lot more than the Uk however the Uk may be two weeks behind Spain so to be totally honest no one really knows all of Europe is struggling to contain this virus we love our life living in Spain but we have family in the Uk who feel as safe as one can at such times,

This is not a competition.  It’s a worldwide pandemic. It never went away and cases are increasing again in almost every country and most are doing their best to contain and protect its citizens.

Yesterday I received photos of my family of 6 in the UK celebrating a birthday together,

They are all in a family bubble. No masks. happy and relaxed. Aware of the seriousness of the covid but getting on with life.

I compare this to ourselves,  Distancing, wearing masks and stressed to the eyeballs !

Where would I rather be ? but with the Quarentine we could not fly on Friday as planned.

Incidentally it should also have been my 80th Birthday party.

Not everyone. I mean the sensible ones.. in either Country are wrong, just treating things differently in my view.   Take care everyone

I was in El Campello at the start of August and it was quiet. Admittedly, I felt a lot safer in Spain, as wearing masks and social distancing was the norm. It was a marked contrast when I returned to the UK - not many masks being worn anywhere, and people not keeping their distance. I arrived in the UK just after they reimposed the 14 day quarantine rule, but I didn't have to fill in any forms, and there was nobody in the airport to check despite me arriving on a flight from Spain. I self quarantined at home for the required 14 days out of duty, but to be honest nobody knew I was doing it apart from my work and my family. In such a situation, I wondered how many other people on my flight chose not to self quarantine as they would have gotten away with not doing so. That is the difference between Spain and the UK.

We were in Campello Friday. Everyone wearing masks, bars and restaurants open, all be it quiet. All shops and supermarkets open, no gloves required now, but must sanitise. 

The crowds have gone and you can park again. The Covid case for El Campello are still low, and we have only had 1 case in Busot, but think its inevitable that we may get more.

We arrived on Thursday after a 3 day drive down no checks at Calais and no checks at Spanish border.

Went out Thursday to local pub mask on passed group of 4 on the street,no masks,copper passed the group of 4 in his car not a word said.over the weekend seen dozens of people walking around with no masks.Supermarkets are like a football march people bumping into you,no social distancing what so ever,heres us thinking it will be a lot safer over  here after hearing all the comments about how strict they are??, load of bloody rubbish regardless where you are here or Uk the authorities are not doing their job in punishing the ignorant selfish pricks who think they are immune to it all.
