Rough shooting, wildfowling and deer stalking can continue
If you cannot comply with these conditions, then you must not shoot as a form of exercise. Driven game shooting or other group shooting activities do not comply with the requirements and must not take place.
The social, physical and personal benefits of participating in shooting have been evidenced and recognised. Whilst taking part in outdoor shooting activities as a form of exercise remains permissible, please consider the personal benefit relative to the societal benefit of staying at home to protect the NHS and save lives.
