Annika Hom filed this request with the Department of Public Health of Contra Costa County, CA.

It is a clone of this request.

Awaiting Acknowledgement


From: Annika Hom

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any and all data since March 1, 2020 to present, that shows the ethnicity of each person who tested for Covid-19 in both private healthcare and public health testing sites in Contra Costa County. I understand that Contra Costa County already tracks this information given the fact that they are able to present case and death data by ethnicity, as shown here: https://www.coronavirus.cchealth.org/overview. Laboratory testing data is also shown and tracked here https://www.coronavirus.cchealth.org/overview . Additionally, the state of California requires that County Health Departments track this information since Sept. 2020, which is stated on the state website here: https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/CaliforniaHealthEquityMetric.aspx .

In addition, I would like all datasets that show how many tests and vaccines were used by/given to healthcare providers and how many tests and vaccines were used by/given to Contra Costa County Department of Public Health from March 1, 2020 to present. I understand that the Health Department receives records of this information through partnerships with the healthcare facilities in its county.

I would like this information in a downloadable format of a CV, Excel or spreadsheet file if possible. This should already be likely given the nature of other Health Department data which uses this spreadsheet format.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.
