Kia Ora Rudy – tough and challenging; and I can understand how people will react in different ways. I suspect firstly, if the one of the franchisees does not want you or your staff on his/her premises in level 2, there is nothing you can do about that. I also don’t think you will get a personalised letter from MBIE about this. All you can do is point to the guidelines and rules for businesses at each level of 4 3 and 2 – as the ‘rules’ are published to enable businesses and citizens to operate under generally.

I can see that some people will want total safety – but also following good practice of masking, distancing I would hope give your customer/partners confidence when you are distributing the magazines.

An open question to the franchisee might be – how would you be happy to have the magazines in the business?
