  • German police spent Sunday chasing daytrippers off the slopes of a closed ski resort after hundreds of people flocked to Vinterberg, east of Dusseldorf, defying appeals from authorities to stay home.

  • Vinterberg has seen a rush off thousands in recent days, leading to traffic jams and overcrowded parking lots.

  • Earlier in the day, police had sought to block access to the town, but spokesman Sebastian Held said the district's interconnected slopes covering thousands of square miles have posed a challenge when trying to enforce Germany's strict regulations.

  • Unfortunately, we saw again today that they announced band to access the ski slopes did not stop too many people from coming here anyway.

  • That's why we had to close the access roads here in consultation with the town.

  • This means that we have consistently closed the main access roads leading to Vinterberg in order to prevent the ski slopes from filling up again.

  • Authorities said they had registered 176 violations of the face mask wearing law and 94 violations of social distancing rules.

  • Germany is likely to extend its national lock down beyond January 10th.

  • Chancellor Angela Merkel and regional leaders are expected to agree to the extension when they convene on Tuesday.

  • It is not yet clear how long the extension will last.
