Escape on skis
100 people celebrate illegal carnival party
In a district of the city of Marienberg in the Saxon Erzgebirge district, several people have gathered for the ski carnival without observing hygiene measures.
The partly costumed celebrants stood close together in a field on Sunday afternoon, skiing or tobogganing on a slope, as the police in Chemnitz announced. Most of the time, they did not wear mouth and nose covers, nor did they keep minimum distances.
The exact number of people can therefore not be confirmed. According to a police spokesman, there were indications that around 100 people were involved.
The police hope to be able to determine other participants in the ski carnival.
