This document outlines the principles for Covid safe operation of game shoots in England through reference to relevant Government guidance and regulation. It has been produced to assist those managing game shoots to think about and manage the risk posed by COVID-19. It is not exhaustive, and each shoot will need to evaluate its own operations.
Updates following the reintroduction of a ‘3-Tier’ system for local restrictions in England from 2 December are provided in red. Shooting in groups, including driven game shooting, can continue in all Tiers from 2 December subject to following strict guidance.
On the 19 December the Prime Minister announced that London and the South East would be enetering Tier 4 - you can read our guidance here.
