P-06-1216 Reduce costs for PCR test in Wales when returning from abroad and end isolation for vaccinated



This petition was submitted by Jonathan Thomas, having collected a total of 203 signatures.


Text of Petition:                     

Costs for PCR tests in Wales are high in comparison to the rest of the UK. Welsh Government insist on testing through NHS, whereas in the rest of the UK you can get a private test,


You are also required to isolate when returning from abroad even if you are double vaccinated or have come into contact with someone who has tested positive. There is no test to release early. We should end isolation if you have been double vaccinated and end testing requirements if you travel abroad.


Additional Information:

Bring us in line with England. Our cases and infections are lower.
