To get an idea of how things are in a particular country, look at the 14 day statistics here, it’s updated daily. Spain currently has about 9 times as many cases per 100000 as UK.

Trouble is we (uk) arent doing enough testing whereas other countries are doing a lot more so figures will be a lot higher so it may be a guide but not that great a guide - just use caution and go for it

The reason that the figure per 100000 is useful is that by taking the number of tests into account the outcome is relevant. For example if the number of tests were doubled the figure per 100000 should remain the same. This means that there really are 9 times as many cases at present in Spain than in the UK.
The map lower down on the linked page is also interesting.
There is sometimes confusion as the rates per 100000 are sometimes quoted for 7 days and sometimes 14. The UK government uses a 14 day rate of 40 for quarantine imposition, though this varies a little as other factors are also considered.

Trouble is what was safe last week for example could be a hotspot this week so i view it as take your chances but just keep your guard up ( use mask inside areas and some hand sanitiser )

Just my personal view although swmbo is of a different opinion

I can only think that the Pyrenees perhaps means relatively little movement between the two compared to local mixing on either side.

I did wonder, but figured people must still cross a fair bit for work etc.

Hey, ho, who knows lol.

Hi Kenspain - good to see you are enjoying your travels.
Some months ago I heard through a discussion with a relative that the MH area in Cullera had been closed permanently. Is there a change in attitudes to MH stays in that area?

Spain, like the UK and all other European countries, has varying rates of infection. The village we live in has not yet recorded a single case whereas some towns nearby have high levels. The rates in Murcia region are increasing daily however much more testing is being carried out. For interest here is a link to the current situation in this region.

Was in Palamós last Thursday for 3 nights, Ebre wetlands for night and now Valencia. Sites are pretty empty and those here are Spanish. Seen very few Brit motorhomes on my way down through France . Today in Valencia did not see anyone without a mask on transport or out on the road streets. Feel no more threatened here than at home watching the numbers increase daily.
