 The  German Association of Cities has announced increased controls of the corona rules in view of the spring-like weather. ©

 The  police had to enforce the corona rules several times over the weekend.

“We are currently seeing that the number of infections is rising again and we have to be very careful. If we get careless, we gamble away the successes of the past few weeks, ”said Helmut Dedy, General Manager of the German Association of Cities, the“ Rheinische Post ”. “Where necessary, cities will therefore increasingly control popular public spaces.”

It is clear, however, that city employees cannot be on every corner, Dedy restricted. He therefore appealed to citizens to continue to adhere to distance rules and contact restrictions. “People have to act responsibly, then we can all enjoy the good weather despite Corona.”

At the weekend, the police had to intervene in some places to ensure compliance with the corona rules. In Bavaria, for example, the Walhalla memorial in Donaustauf was closed due to the large crowds in sunny weather. According to the police, many people did not wear masks there on Saturday and did not keep their distance. In the Baltic resort of Boltenhagen in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, checkpoints were set up and day-trippers were turned away. And in Lower Saxony, the Hanover police at Steinhuder Meer or Maschsee had to intervene several times after violations.

After the spring-like weekend, the high “Ilonka” will give people in Germany plenty of sun in the coming days. ©

 The  temperatures remain very mild in many places with highs of 15 to 20 degrees, as the German Weather Service (DWD) announced on Monday.
