Hi can anyone tell me if we are allowed to go in the car we are a couple together to the supermarket or pharmacy as the Spanish government has eased lockdown restrictions but they are not very clear what’s happening now I need to get out !! 
also I was in process of replating my English car before lockdown does anyone know when the Itv will reopen 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated 

Thanks

At the moment, the only things that have changed are that certain people can go to work (mostly construction trade), and children under 14 can go out for a walk. Nothing else is any different.

The car services are all shut for now, too.

Keep going! At least the weather seems to be improving!!

Thanks for advice this lockdown is getting very restrictive I can’t believe we are the only ones in Europe that can’t go out for a walk why can’t the Spanish trust us?

I think the photos of the paseo marítimo in Marbella this weekend, with loads of people showing no signs of social distancing tell you why the Spanish government don’t trust the people! Give them an inch and they are taking a mile!

I would not risk it.  My friends got a 600 euro fine for the two of them going in the car AND they live together.  They were just going shopping.  Until its clear you take the risk of a very large fine.

Neither would I Kerri, not because of the fine, but because of the fear! Life is too precious - be patient - stay home & stay safe!

I am currently in Vancouver BC Canada and not very restrictive here.  People carrying on being outside, getting Vitamin D, building up their immunity and staying fit, healthy and strong.  This is also needed to fight the virus.  Also lucky we are that British Columbia has not been hit hard like Spain.  So glad that I was here and not there when this hit.  Feeling for you all stuck over there.
