There is some understandable concern about the spread of the new coronavirus, called Covid-19. Our medical advisor explains what we are doing to help keep you safe, and also what restrictions the local authorities may put in place to avoid further spread.
While we are still leaning about Covid-19 we do know about many very similar viruses. So when it comes to cleaning holiday apartments you can rest assured:
Bed coverings , towels and linens are all washed at 600C. This is the internationally recommended temperature for destroying all viruses.
We clean hard surfaces; worktops, basins, handrails, and door handles for example with a hypochlorite solution.
In addition we provide a 72hr ‘sterile period’ after every rental.
As a courtesy we provide a small selection of disposable gloves, masks and hand sanitiser for your use.
Local bars and restaurants
Local bars and restaurants all comply with local public health regulations. For this reason you might experience limited capacity, or in some cases might be advised to book and reserve ahead.
Social distancing will be enforced on local beaches, this isn't quite as bad as it sounds. It just means that beaches will be managed to avoid overcrowding. You might be required to book a space on the beach using a local app which you can download for free. Likewise sunbeds and sunshades will also only be available to book and pay for on-line.
The law in Spain requires you to wear a face mask at certain times. That includes being in shops, on public transport, and when walking in the open if in a crowded situation. You are not required to wear a mask if you are on the beach (not walking around) or swimming.
Local rules and regulations
There are many local rules and regulations that have come into effect. Unlike in some countries these are rules and are enforced with fines and possible arrest. So however weird or odd they may appear to you, disregard them at your own risk. We will provide you with a link to the local town hall where you will be able to read the latest do's and do don'ts.
