Kristina Erdely started this petition to Boris Johnson (Prime Minister)

Whilst the newspapers are only talking about British Holiday makers travelling this summer there are many British families like mine who have elderly parents, family  living outside of the UK. I am a single parent with 2 children, we have been separated from our family in Europe for so long and are desperate to see our loved ones. My mother is elderly, hasn't seen anyone for a year! 

The work shortage over the pandemic months means there is no money even for the basics let alone incredibly pricey PCR tests. The affordable ones are all booked up until the end of August. We booked very cheap budget flights months ago, but with PCR tests costing hundreds of pounds for a family, being a single parent family there is no way we can afford to see our loved ones. Testing is important but it has to be very affordable or free. Not being able to afford compulsory PCR testing = not being able to be reunited with loved ones. 

There was talks about this many months ago in the media but it all went quiet. The school holidays are upon us and the tests are still compulsory yet unaffordable even  for the average British family not to mention the many single parent households. 

Please make it free or very affordable!
