Good morning everyone. My name is Alison and I've just joined the forum. I have a property over there and am unable to get there now, should have been coming over at the end of the month. I'm pining to get back over and am finding that by reading messages from all of you guys its helping me. I'm looking on Spanish sites and reading all the news. Stay safe every one. We will get through this together!!!!

Hi Alison, this is a good Spanish site for news. It's the equivalent of the BBC ebsite in España

Hi Alison and welcome to the forum!

The weather hasn't been great on the Costa Blanca this week and more rain forecast for the weekend, so you're not missing much, LOL!  Hopefully, it will perk up soon and you'll be able to get out here in the summer, if not before.

Best wishes,

Kim

Hi Alison, as Kim said weather not great, but better than UK I'm sure. We are booked to return to UK on 30th March, but as we have been in lockdown here since last weekend we are thinking of staying put as UK still deciding on what to do. We work remotely luckily but are arranging for important work papers to be sent over as well as my medication. However, changes are happening daily so not sure if/when we will return to UK and then back to Spain. So much uncertainty, everywhere. Good luck and stay well.

It may help you to keep up to date with new legislation for the current situation if you keep an eye on the N332 Facebook page, as they post updates on a regular basis.   It is run in conjunction with officers of the Guardia Civil for English speaking people and usually it is just for anything to do with driving in Spain, but the current situation has meant that they have added information regarding the virus.

Hi Alison

We bought our property about this time last year and pretty much joined the forum at the same time

There is an abundance of knowledge and help on here 

Welcome

Hi Janet

We are not at the stage of worry yet but have half an eye on it

We are over for an eleven week stint and have sufficient medication

If this lockdown continues for months though we have not got a plan b at this time

How so you facilitate having your medication sent over ?

Cheers

Grahame

Hi Grahame, getting my meds has been a problem as UK GP rejected my on-line order Friday just gone as it was too early, I had to call them to say I actually left 1 months worth at home not knowing we'd be stuck here. Hopefully they will approve it and my daughter can pick them up; we are arranging DHL to deliver work stuff to us and can include them. If not, then I will ask them to email the prescription and try and get it here. I managed to buy an inhaler that ran out but was charged €51, so would rather use prescription here with EHIC card as it would be cheaper.

Thanks Janet

Based on your reply I went to the chemist to check

Most important meds were antacids 

Managed to get the prescription strength ones over the counter

As your experience they were expensive 

But at least I know they are available 

Cheers
