How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/   Free OnLine Photo Collage Maker Update: Fotor.com website has been buggy lately. For an alternative, that did not even ask for my email to use, try https://www.photocollage.com/
This may even be the better option now. -Ed.

CORONA VIRUS HOTLINE: Information hotline for those who suspect they may have the coronavirus. Anyone experiencing symptoms should stay at home and dial 900 400 061 or 955 545 060 – and only call 112 in an emergency.

When you need reliable info consult The Citizens Advice Bureau Spain at https://www.citizensadvice.org.es/…or the website or Facebook page of your local Town Hall (Ayuntamiento). I suggest you check it daily.

 

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.  -Editor

Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating. If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.

 

EU recovery fund conditions could hinder labor law changes in Spain:
If so-called “frugal” countries impose their demands for releasing Covid-19 grants, the Spanish executive may have to delay plans for revising 2012 reform that made firing cheaper. This and more on EU meddling in Spanish affairs here: https://english.elpais.com/economy_and_business/2020-07-20/eu-recovery-fund-conditions-could-hinder-labor-law-changes-in-spain.html

 

Don’t Hog Space on The Beach or You May Face a Hefty Fine in Malaga: This rule introduced on July 15 for the beaches of Rincon de la Victoria tries to avoid anyone reserving physical space on the beaches, be it by placing objects or belongings (chairs, umbrellas, tables etc) without the physical presence of a person for over than an hour. Anyone caught violating this new decree could face a fine anywhere from 60 to 750 euros.

Italian Police Target Pirate IPTV With 72 Searches Against Operators & Financial System While Spain Resumes It’s Own Crackdown: While authorities all around Europe are cracking down on the supply of pirate IPTV, a disproportionate number of large-scale actions center on providers operating in Italy and Spain.
Police in the former have just announced yet another large operation against a pirate IPTV network which reportedly offered illegal access to subscription content usually offered by Sky, DAZN, Mediaset and Infinity at a premium price. No further details have yet been made available but somewhat unusually, Spotify is also mentioned among the list of companies whose rights have been infringed.

These banners do NOT indicate the business is open during the Alarm Period. They are simply promos like a roadside billboard. I see no reason to remove them. By now everyone should know non-essential travel is banned. Call Sponsors for their current status as most, but not all, must be closed. -Ed.
