According to the Association of Mature American Citizens, she declared that the Easter Bunnies had been classified as an essential workers. As she put it: "But as you can imagine at this time they're going to be potentially quite busy at home with their family as well and their own bunnies, and so I say to the children of New Zealand: If the Easter Bunny doesn't make it to your household, we have to understand it's a bit difficult at the moment for the bunny to get everywhere."
