New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was turned away from a coffee because it was too full.
Mrs. Ardern and her fiancé Clarke Gayford attempted to dine at Olive in Wellington on Saturday morning.
“Omg Jacinda Ardern just tried to join Olive and was rejected because she is full,” wrote a colleague on Twitter.
New Zealand entered Alert 2 of its coronavirus action plan on Thursday, allowing the Kiwis to slowly resume their daily lives. Restaurants and cafes have been allowed to open but must respect a physical distance by keeping customers one meter away from others and prohibiting groups of more than 10 people.
Ms. Ardern and Mr. Gayford were finally able to have a meal at the restaurant after the space became available.
Gayford blamed himself for the hiccups, but praised the place for their customer service and respect for the rules.
