Dear Applicant,

I am writing to notify you that the Department of Health (department) has
received your request for access to documents under the Freedom of
Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) as follows:

‘I am requesting copies of :

- medical advices/studies received by the department in relation to
COVID19/severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), and

- internal documents relating to the efficacy of measures in place as at
19 March 2020

 

Between 1 December 2019 to 19 March 2020. ’

 

Request for extension of time

 

The department is actively processing your request and is aiming to
finalise it as quickly as possible. However, the department is currently
experiencing an increased workload to manage and respond to the
coronavirus pandemic, with a large amount of resources being diverted to
do so. The content of your request means that any documents that exist
would sit with the line area who has responsibility for the department’s
continued response to the coronavirus.

 

On this basis, the department is seeking an extension of 30 calendar days,
with a decision to be provided to you no later than COB 18 May 2020.

 

Next Steps

 

Could you please advise the department by COB 23 March 2020 if you agree
to the request for extension of time?

 

 

Kind regards

Bria
