Jacinda Ardern turned away from cafe under virus rules

Jacinda Ardern turned away from cafe under virus rules”

The Prime Minister who has led us through the turmoil of terrorism, volcanism and nearly bubonic plague would not be left wondering in Auckland if the cafe was full!

But social distancing rules apply, requiring classes to stay at least 1 meter (3 ft ) apart from one another.

Yesterday morning, a Twitter user named Joey said: "Omg Jacinda Ardern just tried to come into Olive and was rejected cause it's full", followed by an aghast skull emoji.

"Never mind they sorted her out", he added 15 minutes later. "A+ service", Gayford said. This was just two days following the nation relaxed several of its lockdown principles, such as reopening restaurants.

Few hours later, Jacinda's partner, Clarke Gayford, replied to the tweet jokingly saying he forgot to book a table, but praised the restaurant staff for their service.

Back in Australia - despite coronavirus restrictions lifting around the country and cases falling - the NSW Health Minister has warned we should be treating everyone, including ourselves, as if they have the virus.

An unnamed manager of the cafe told the NZ Herald that no special exceptions were made for the Prime Minister and her partner.

Ms Ardern and her fiance Clarke Gayford chose to get brunch on Saturday at Olive, a restaurant in the capital Wellington, two days after the country relaxed many of its lockdown rules, including reopening restaurants.

Asked for comment, a spokesperson in Ardern's office stated in an email that waiting in a cafe is something which anybody can encounter during New Zealand's virus limitations: "The PM says that she simply waits like everybody else". She was lovely with all the staff ... New Zealand reported that as of Sunday, it had 1,149 confirmed coronavirus cases and just 21 deaths, per Reuters.
