Rejected petition Delay brexit due to Covid-19

In light of the recent coronavirus outbreak we ask the government to delay brexit to allow people more time to prepare

More details

The recent outbreak of Covid-19 has severely disrupted peoples plans regarding Brexit. Planned flights have been cancelled, local government institutions are closed, and whole countries are in lock down.
While government is still able to continue with its preparations for brexit, everyday people are not.
We ask that the UK government delays brexit for a time period roughly in line with the duration of the disruption caused by Covid-19.
