The Herald reports:
There is now no doubt – fishing, swimming, surfing, hunting and tramping are banned under new lockdown laws.
Kiwis had previously been advised not to take part in these activities during the Covid-19 lockdown but the ban was made official in fresh laws released on the Government’s Covid-19 website today.
People cannot leave home to hunt, tramp, swim, take part in other water-based activities, such as surfing and boating, or do anything that may put them in danger or require help from rescue services.
It would be interesting to know how often people undertaking these activities do require assistance.
But good to have a specific list now, rather than have it depend on the discretion of each police officer.
