Easter bunny can visit during lockdown, says NZ PM

With Easter Sunday just days away, lots of us have probably been looking forward to a visit from the Easter bunny. But will the bunny still be able to make it with the coronavirus pandemic still going on?

Currently the only people allowed to work are key workers, whose jobs are considered essential.
