Auckland hospitality industry figure and mayoral candidate Leo Molloy is planning to segregate his staff according to who is and isn’t vaccinated, when his restaurant, Headquarters, on the Viaduct reopens in alert level 2, NZ Herald reports. “There is no clarity in what [the government] are planning next so I am trying to get myself in a position where I can create a number of different options for customers to feel safe,” Molloy says. The owner says he hasn’t had any pushback from his 60 staff. “This idea comes from a good place, he’s trying to protect the staff and look after the customers and broaden the options for people,” says Headquarters manager Kim Curtayne.
