Province deems Easter Bunny an essential worker

Premier Dennis King today declared the Easter Bunny an essential worker under the Public Health Act after consulting with Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Heather Morrison.  

“I have spoken with the Easter Bunny to let him know that he can carry out his duties this weekend, delivering eggs to Island households during the pandemic, as he provides a very important essential service, especially to Island children.  

The Easter Bunny assured me that he will be extra diligent in following Dr. Morrison’s direction to practice proper physical distancing, something we all know the he is an expert in, and he promised to wash his paws after he leaves every house. I also let the Easter Bunny know that Environment, Water and Climate Change Minister Natalie Jameson and her team have plans in place to leave grass clippings in strategic locations across the province to ensure he has lots to eat as he visits Island households.

I want to thank the Easter Bunny for his hard work, and wish all Islanders a very safe and happy Easter weekend.”
