If I am not wrong, the time is extended to 6 months now. But contact your council to double check.Citizenship ceremonies and coronavirus (COVID-19)
Usually you must attend a citizenship ceremony within 3 months of receiving your invitation from the Home Office. Because of coronavirus, this time has been extended.
You might be able to have an online ‘virtual’ ceremony, if your local council offers it. You can attend alone or with members of your household.

Go ahead and sign petitions, but be aware that this is not something that the government can change overnight.
