The sale of State Game Licences for the purpose of hunting has been postponed.
According to the Agriculture Ministry, this decision was taken by the Conservator of Forests after consultation with the Health Ministry, which advised that hunting encourages congregation.
The move it adds is in keeping with the regulations to manage COVID-19.
The regulations, which have now been extended to October 11th, restrict public gatherings to five persons or less, and persons are also required to wear a mask when in public.
The Conservator of Forests however is still considering other aspects of hunting, including the exercising of dogs, which is normally permitted at this time.
A decision on these will reportedly be addressed in a subsequent release.
