New Zealand kids, you can rest easy. The coronavirus will not prevent the Tooth Fairy and Easter Bunny from visiting you with presents.You can thank New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who added the two mythical characters to the list of essential workers.
“You’ll be pleased to know that we consider both the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny to be essential workers,” Ardern said at a news conference Monday. “But as you can imagine, at this time, of course, they’re going to be potentially quite busy at home with their family as well and their own bunnies.”
The bunny will clock in for Easter on April 12. The tooth fairy’s reporting for duty, too.
