Dear Christopher

Re: Official Information Request – Covid-19: Procedures for at home Isolation and at home Quarantine

I am writing to acknowledge your official information request dated 3 November 2021.

We will endeavour to respond to your request as soon as possible and, in any event, no later than 1 December 2021. We will contact you if an extension is required.

“Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic response, Auckland DHB continues to experience significantly higher volumes of requests for information. Many key Auckland DHB and Auckland Regional Public Health Service staff are currently committed to tasks associated with the current COVID-19 outbreak. This will invariably impact on our ability to respond to certain OIA requests within normal timeframes.

If you have any questions about management of OIA during the COVID pandemic you may find it helpful to read the following from the Office of the Ombudsman https://smex12-5-en-ctp.trendmicro.com:4...

Please note that, like other DHBs across New Zealand, Auckland DHB has adopted a model of proactive disclosure which sees OIA responses publically available on our website approximately one month after they have been released. If you believe that there are any special reasons why proactive disclosure should not apply to our response to you, we will be happy to consider this.

Kind regards
Priscilla
