All outdoor recreational shooting activities are permitted.
Essential retail is permitted to open and this may include some firearms dealers, depending on their specific circumstances.
All indoor sports facilities such as shooting ranges etc. must remain closed.
Outdoor sports facilities can open but only to permit their use for those allowed in the regulations. Club houses etc. must stay closed.
