I don't think Percy ever reconciled with the family. Taking from news/reports and the wiki.

 

On 1 August, 1997, Percy was the only member of his family who did not attend his brother Bill's wedding to Fleur Delacour, despite Molly's hopes that he would, which led her to cry again. On the same day, the Ministry of Magic was overthrown by Death Eaters, and Rufus Scrimgeour was killed and replaced by Pius Thicknesse, a puppet of Voldemort's. Percy finally began to see what was happening around him, but could do nothing since he was being watched closely. He continued to work at the Ministry, presumably under the new Minister. Eventually, though, he managed to make contact with Aberforth Dumbledore, Albus Dumbledore's estranged younger brother, who had connections with the Order of the Phoenix and Dumbledore's Army.

 

On 1 May, 1998, Aberforth tipped Percy off to the fact that Hogwarts was taking a stand against Voldemort. Percy Apparated to the Hog's Head, and travelled down the secret tunnel to the Room of Requirement, hoping he hadn't missed the battle. In the room, he found the majority of his family trying to restrain Ginny from joining the battle. In a tense moment, Percy apologised profusely to his family, and his brother Fred, who, along with George, were the most vocal in their anger towards Percy, was the first to forgive him. Reunited with his family, he stood alongside with the defenders of Hogwarts against the Death Eaters.

 

Battle of Hogwarts
Percy: "Hello, Minister! Did I mention I'm resigning?"
Fred Weasley: "You're joking, Perce! You actually are joking, Percy... I don't think I've heard you joke since you were — "
— Percy duels Pius Thicknesse

 

During the Battle of Hogwarts, Percy and Fred fought alongside each other. Percy was duelling the then Minister Pius Thicknesse and in the middle of the battle, he jokingly told the Minister he had resigned. Fred was surprised with his brother for making a joke after so long — but the joyous mood was shattered when an explosion destroyed part of the corridor they were in and killed Fred. Percy, grief-stricken, refused to leave his brother's body until Harry, who was quite angry at him before, and Ron helped him store it safely in a wall niche. Full of anger and sorrow, Percy stormed back into battle, charging after Death Eater Augustus Rookwood, who was attacking a group of students further down the corridor.

 

Percy stands with his family and friends during the battle
During the one-hour armistice, Percy mourned Fred with his family in the Great Hall. He was also present when Voldemort announced Harry's "supposed" death, looking shocked and saddened, as he had once again came to consider Harry a friend. When the second half of the battle broke out, he joined forces in the Great Hall and with the help of his father was able to floor Thicknesse. Percy also witnessed the slaying of Bellatrix Lestrange at the hands of his mother, along with Harry Potter's final defeat of Lord Voldemort bringing about the end of the Second Wizarding War.

 

Percy with his family after the Battle
In the aftermath of the battle, it can be assumed that Percy was one of the people who rushed to Harry's side and attempted to hug him. He later sat with his family in silence and mourning. He was sitting next to his father and across from his mother, sister, and George. The family, while rejoicing the end of the Second Wizarding War, was also devastated over the loss of Fred.

      Happy New Year Everyone and Remember to stay safe from Covid - 19 and Not to use Polyjuice potion. I know that this is a very bad time for all of us but remember the song of the sorting hat " unite all the houses and we will fight as one." We must all be united in our fight against covid - 19 and take as many measures as we can in our daily lives to protect ourselves and others. I know that we are all afraid of Covid - 19 at times because of all the new variants but we need to stay strong for we all have a better chance of surviving Covid-19 if we all work together to stop Covid-19,  anyway that this is what I believe. And so this is the only advice I can give you and it all means in short to stay safe whenever possible. Anyway Have a wonderful year and remember never to use polyjuice potion. Also rememeber to keep watching the amazing Harry Potter franchise whenever possible and to read the Harry potter Books too as they are amazing stories.

      What was it like to be taken to azkaban for the prisoners? What did the experience there and for what offences did they get sent there? And were they sentenced there always for life or only for a certain number of years? And if only for a number of years did the prisoners survive?  Also Why did the Ministry employ  the dementors as Azkaban guards and not actual people?
