My Dutch friend, Otto de Kosta, lives on a catamaran called Odyssey in Estepona and is in lockdown with his girlfriend and two male friends. They can’t go anywhere unless they are alone and only to the supermarket. Otto reports that he’s playing lots of card games, Rummikub and binging on Netflix. The weather is looking dicey for the next few days but when the sunshine returns Otto and his friends will set sail. What a wonderful opportunity to get away from it all under Spanish lockdown.
The latest from Estepona Council is that they are following all measures from the central government with regard to coronavirus. They are tasked with supplying water, sewage, electricity, and cleaning. The cleaning is concentrated on sensitive areas including entrances to supermarkets, bus stations, transport stops and access to medical centers. Gardeners must ensure the plant and trees of the city are kept irrigated. Two vehicles will be supervising the beaches for incidents. City workers will not share vehicles or work utensils and are following social distancing measures.
Neighbors who need to report incidents of loss of services such as light or sewage can call the City Council on 952 80 90 00, Extensions 1213, 1218,1327 or 1488. Alternatively, they can email [email protected]
