Due to ongoing changes in Westminster over the weekend, the drafting of the final Covid legislation relating to "Organised outdoor activities" is still evolving, and some Police forces do not yet have a full understanding of it.
The Hunting Office is working hard to clarify the situation and get firm advice on Hunting operations. We are confident that Hunting will be able to continue and will issue more guidance as soon as we can.
For the time being, it is essential that anyone coming out hunting (mounted or on foot) form clearly distinct and separate groups of no more than 6 - the Fieldmaster, Hunt Officials and the Covid Compliance Officer should be responsible for making sure these groups remain wholly separate throughout the course of the activities.
To be clear, while is it fine for attendees to spread out, at no point must people gather in groups of more than 6.
Please let us know if you have any queries. We will keep you updated as much as we can.
