New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Sunday she had cancelled her wedding, as the government imposed new restrictions to slow the spread of the most recent COVID-19 wave, driven by the highly-infectious Omicron variant – Jan 23, 2022
She will not be in Parliament this week for the government’s Emissions Reduction Plan on Monday and the coming Budget on Thursday.
“Travel arrangements for her trade mission to the United States are unaffected at this stage”, the statement added.
