‘Neve was so excited that it was Mother’s Day she got up nice and early to share this lovely card! (Who doesn’t love being compared to hot lava …).’

‘The downside is Clarke woke up feeling a bit average and has tested positive for Covid, so we have 7 days of family time ahead of us!’

Ms Ardern said she would continue to work remotely while she was in isolation.

‘I’ll be working from home so anyone who watches question time, or is attending my Business NZ speech on Wednesday, you’ll still see me remotely!’

‘Otherwise, a happy Mother’s Day to everyone who plays mum in anyone’s life. You are as magical as hot lava is to a three-year-old!’ she said.

New Zealand still enforces isolation rules for household contact of positive Covid cases.

Household contacts must isolate from the moment the Covid positive person receives their test result.

They must undertake a Rapid Antigen Test on the third and seventh day of the positive contact’s isolation period.

‘Mum. Yay! It is Mother’s Day! Happy Mother’s Day! I love fishy kisses. I love you like hot lava. Love from, Neve,’ the card read.
