SFDPH:

NOTE: THE EMAIL ADDRESS SENDING THIS REQUEST IS A PUBLICLY-VIEWABLE MAILBOX. Please be certain you have properly redacted all of your responses. Once you send them to us, there is no going back. All of your responses (including all responsive records) may be instantly and automatically available to the public online via the MuckRock.com FOIA service used to issue this request (though the requester is an anonymous user, not a representative of MuckRock). Nothing herein is legal, IT, or professional advice of any kind. The author disclaims all warranties, express or implied, including but not limited to all warranties of merchantability or fitness. In no event shall the author be liable for any special, direct, indirect, consequential, or any other damages whatsoever. The digital signature, if any, in this email is not an indication of a binding agreement or offer; it merely authenticates the sender. Please do not include any confidential information, as I intend that these communications with the City all be disclosable public records.

Below are new Immediate Disclosure Requests (SF Admin Code 67.25(a)) directed to your agency and its department head.
Your initial response is required by March 2, 2020. Rolling records responses are requested (SFAC 67.25(d)) if you are unable to immediately produce records.
Exact copies of every responsive record are requested (Gov Code 6253(b)). Provide only copies of records not requiring fees and in-person inspection of all other records (GC 6253).

Your non-exhaustive obligations:
- All withholding of any information must be justified in writing by specific statutory authority (SFAC 67.27).
- All withholdings by masking or deletion (aka redactions) must be keyed by footnote or other clear reference to the specific justification for that redaction, and only the minimal exempt portion of any record may be withheld (SFAC 67.26).
- You must respond to emailed requests (SFAC 67.21(b)).
- You must notify us of whether or not responsive records exist and/or were withheld for each below request (Gov Code 6253(c), 6255(b)).
- You must state the name and title of each person responsible for withholding any information (Gov Code 6253(d)).
- Do not impose any end-user restrictions upon me (Santa Clara Co. vs Superior Ct, 170 Cal.App 4th 1301); so if you use a third-party website to publish records, please make them completely public without any login or sign-in.

Your agency must do all of the above things in your response, and you cannot wait until we file complaints.

****** We have no duty to, and we will not again, remind the City of its obligations. Instead, we will file complaints for every Sunshine Ordinance or CPRA violation. We will continue to file complaints until the City's procedures are modified to fully comply with the Sunshine Ordinance and CPRA, without caveat or exception. ******

1. All communications with CDC or its employees (email, text, or chat) with any of the following insensitive keywords: "coronavirus" "wuhan" "SARS" "COVID" "COVID19" "COVID-19" "SARS-CoV-2" "2019-nCOV" "nCOV" "severe acute respiratory syndrome" "viral pneumonia" "pneumonia of unknown origin" "novel pneumonia" from Nov 14, 2019 to present. For solely this request, any format showing all participants (TO, FROM, CC; and BCC for items sent by City employees) and preserving the body, attachments and images is sufficient.

2. All communications to or from the California DPH or its employees (email, text, or chat) with any of the following insensitive keywords: "coronavirus" "wuhan" "SARS" "COVID" "COVID19" "COVID-19" "SARS-CoV-2" "2019-nCOV" "nCOV" "severe acute respiratory syndrome" "viral pneumonia" "pneumonia of unknown origin" "novel pneumonia" from Nov 14, 2019 to present. For solely this request, any format showing all participants (TO, FROM, CC; and BCC for items sent by City employees) and preserving the body, attachments and images is sufficient.

This information is of the highest public interest. You may prioritize this request over any other outstanding Sunshine requests from me, if it would speed up your response to this one.
You may exclude press releases or similar material already published to the general public. If you believe this query would take more than say a week to produce, please provide suggestions to narrow the query to match my purpose, which is: to determine the scope and quality of Federal, state, and local government response to COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2, most importantly including decisions to test or not to test PUIs or other suspect cases.

Do not destroy or discard any responsive records - we will appeal all withholdings or Sunshine violations.

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

Sincerely,
Anonymous

I am expecting you to provide all of the Feb 28, 2020 information requested that is immediately available by March 2, 2020 CoB that you have. You cannot use maximum deadlines to delay providing an incremental response with whatever you have available; there is no legal reason to delay. Immediate appeals will be filed if you attempt to withhold or delay any information (except for patient privacy).

Also, these are further immediate disclosure requests:
3. Any records of the number of tests available for COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2 testing from CDC.
4. Any records of the COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2 test procedures, manuals, contents, or the conditions suspect cases must meet to be tested (including any communications from CDC regarding this)

Hi there

A message was sent to you regarding record request #20-1076:

Dear requestor:

This letter responds to your Sunshine request for Public Records Act/Sunshine Ordinance requests for Request #20-1076 from 2/28/2020.

The Department of Public Health (DPH) has identified approximately 25,000 emails (totaling a currently unknown number of pages) potentially responsive to your request, all in electronic format.  DPH needs to review the emails for responsiveness.  The emails must also be reviewed for privilege and exemptions.  This effort will be time-consuming and, in light of the global corona virus pandemic, including declared State and local San Francisco emergencies, will involve use of scarce public resources.  City staff are currently deployed to perform emergency services and/or may be working remotely without access to the records that need review.

Therefore, this is to advise that due to and during the emergency, DPH’s document production may be slower than during the ordinary course of business.  DPH will use its best efforts to produce responsive non-exempt records as quickly as possible and will produce records on an incremental or rolling basis.  This complies with the common law rule of reason applicable to public records act responses.  (Bruce v. Gregory (1967) 65 Cal.2d 666, 673; Rosenthal v. Hansen (1973) 34 Cal.App.3d 754 (applying rule of reason).) 

Until the expiration of the State and local emergencies, and in order to conserve City resources, we would request that you or your attorney please direct all communications regarding this request to Deputy City Attorney Louise Simpson.  Ms. Simpson cannot provide legal advice, but will be able to update you on the status of the production.  Ms. Simpson’s direct phone number is: (415) 554-3987.

Thank you for your attention.

DPH and Dept Head:

Below are NEW Immediate Disclosure Requests (SF Admin Code 67.25(a)) directed to you individually and your agency. I am waiving all timeliness requirements for this specific request (but not the prior requests from this email address) until April 7, 2020 subject to the condition that your agency and its employees do not destroy and indeed retain all responsive records (ON BOTH PERSONAL AND GOVERNMENT PROPERTY) that exist as of receipt of this request. You may therefore still need to inform your agency's employees of this request, and that they cannot destroy the responsive records below even on personal property and even if they do not need to respond until April 7.

1. All communications between your agency or its employees/officers on the one hand, and the DEM, CDC, CADPH, or Office of Mayor or any of their employees or officials on the other hand (including all emails, memos, texts, or chats of any form INCLUDING any personal property communications subject to City of San Jose ) including any of the following keywords: "coronavirus" "wuhan" "SARS" "COVID" "COVID19" "COVID-19" "SARS-CoV-2" "2019-nCOV" "nCOV" "severe acute respiratory syndrome" "viral pneumonia" "pneumonia of unknown etiology" from **Nov 14, 2019 to Mar 17, 2020.** For solely this request, any format showing all participants (TO, FROM, CC; and BCC for items sent by City employees) and preserving the body, attachments and images is sufficient. You may exclude final versions of any orders, press releases, or other documents already published by the City on a public website, but you must provide any non-final/prior/non-published versions if you retained them as of this request.

Your experience in the NextRequest system was the first we had heard of it being inaccessible and that you were unable to view our response to your records request seeking clarification. It was never our intention to withhold information.

DPH has identified a voluminous number of emails potentially responsive to your request. We would appreciate any narrowing down of the request. Could you please provide specific names of individuals that you'd request the information?

In the meantime, until we hear from you, to the best of abilities of our abilities, we will begin processing this request based on the narrowing by individuals as opposed to the entire Department. We will provide these documents to you on a rolling basis.

We have included the original request below for reference.

All communications with CDC or its employees (email, text, or chat) with any of the following

insensitive keywords: "coronavirus" "wuhan" "SARS" "COVID" "COVID19" "COVID-19" "SARS-CoV-2" "2019-nCOV" "nCOV" "severe acute respiratory syndrome" "viral pneumonia" "pneumonia of unknown origin" "novel pneumonia" from Nov 14, 2019 to present. For solely this request, any format showing all participants (TO, FROM, CC; and BCC for items sent by City employees) and preserving the body, attachments and images is sufficient.

2. All communications to or from the California DPH or its employees (email, text, or chat) with any of the following insensitive keywords: "coronavirus" "wuhan" "SARS" "COVID" "COVID19" "COVID-19" "SARS-CoV-2" "2019-nCOV" "nCOV" "severe acute respiratory syndrome" "viral pneumonia" "pneumonia of unknown origin" "novel pneumonia" from Nov 14, 2019 to present (request submitted: 2/28/20).

Hello,

I am responding on behalf of SFDPH regarding public records request #20-1076. We first wanted to offer our sincere our apologies. We were not aware that you did not have access to the NextRequest system to view the Department's response to your request. Your experience in the NextRequest system was the first we had heard of it being inaccessible and that you were unable to view our response to your records request seeking clarification. It was never our intention to withhold information.

DPH has identified a voluminous number of emails potentially responsive to your request. We would appreciate any narrowing down of the request. Could you please provide specific names of individuals that you'd request the information?

In the meantime, until we hear from you, to the best of abilities of our abilities, we will begin processing this request based on the narrowing by individuals as opposed to the entire Department. We will provide these documents to you on a rolling basis.

We have included the original request below for reference.

Dear Sunshine Ordinance Task Force:

DPH joined the full task force meeting on April 6th to discuss File No. 20059. DPH has previously provided the requester thousands of pages of responsive records and will continue to share responsive documents on a rolling basis.

This includes emails with attachments. Any email PDFs that include attachments are indicated with an "Attachments" line item at the top of the email. The attachment file names are all active links that can be clicked on to open the files in a new PDF tab or window. An example is pictured below:

[cid:image001.png@01D8557C.18A45C40]

Regarding Dr. Aragon's texts, the custodians of records who managed this request left the Department in September and December of 2021, respectively. When our current team began to work on responding to public records, Dr. Aragon had been gone from the Department for over a year. Dr. Aragon left DPH during the height of a global pandemic and all City efforts at that time were focused on addressing the task of saving lives. We have conducted a thorough search and do not have Dr. Aragon's texts. We apologize for not preserving these records when the request was made. DPH looks forward to resolution guidance on this matter from the Sunshine Task Force.

Finally, we would like to clarify early conversations that the requester had with DPH in March 2020, regarding whether requester would narrow his request. In the initial exchange between the requester and the then custodian of records, 25,000 was the estimated number for all documents, including duplications, not a final count to be used as a measure of documents to be produced. We will continue searching and providing responsive documents on a rolling basis.

Thank you,
DPH Sunshine Team

Subject: Public Records Request #20-1076

Hello,

I am responding on behalf of SFDPH regarding public records request #20-1076. We first wanted to offer our sincere our apologies. We were not aware that you did not have access to the NextRequest system to view the Department's response to your request. Your experience in the NextRequest system was the first we had heard of it being inaccessible and that you were unable to view our response to your records request seeking clarification. It was never our intention to withhold information.

DPH has identified a voluminous number of emails potentially responsive to your request. We would appreciate any narrowing down of the request. Could you please provide specific names of individuals that you'd request the information?

In the meantime, until we hear from you, to the best of abilities of our abilities, we will begin processing this request based on the narrowing by individuals as opposed to the entire Department. We will provide these documents to you on a rolling basis.

We have included the original request below for reference.

All communications with CDC or its employees (email, text, or chat) with any of the following

insensitive keywords: "coronavirus" "wuhan" "SARS" "COVID" "COVID19" "COVID-19" "SARS-CoV-2" "2019-nCOV" "nCOV" "severe acute respiratory syndrome" "viral pneumonia" "pneumonia of unknown origin" "novel pneumonia" from Nov 14, 2019 to present. For solely this request, any format showing all participants (TO, FROM, CC; and BCC for items sent by City employees) and preserving the body, attachments and images is sufficient.

2. All communications to or from the California DPH or its employees (email, text, or chat) with any of the following insensitive keywords: "coronavirus" "wuhan" "SARS" "COVID" "COVID19" "COVID-19" "SARS-CoV-2" "2019-nCOV" "nCOV" "severe acute respiratory syndrome" "viral pneumonia" "pneumonia of unknown origin" "novel pneumonia" from Nov 14, 2019 to present (request submitted: 2/28/20).

Requester,

This message is a follow up to the April 26 SOTF Hearing. Our team has determined that 2 of the PDF batches of responsive records that we have provided thus far contain redactions and therefore the embedded links were "flattened"/deactivated.

For the PDF filename "StaffEmails_Batch2_Redacted.pdf" we have re-attached that here along with all of its corresponding attachments as separate files. In the future, when we redact portions of PDFs, we will not "flatten" the files.

Please note, there are 2 .png attachments that are actually embedded email signature images (screenshot example provided below) and we weren't able to download those as separate files. They should be visible to you within the body of the emails that contain that email signature.
[cid:image001.png@01D85BB2.1CD5F580]

We will work on identifying, downloading, and sending you the attachments for the 1 other PDF that contained flattened links.

Thank you.

Requester,

This message is a follow up to the April 26 SOTF Hearing. Our team has determined that 2 of the PDF batches of responsive records that we have provided thus far contain redactions and therefore the embedded links were "flattened"/deactivated.

We sent you the attachments for 1 of those 2 PDFs on Friday, April 29th @ 10:17 am. With this email we are enclosing the attachments for the 2nd PDF, filename "TomasAragon_CDPHemails_Batch1_Redacted.pdf"

Of note, there were multiple instances wherein more than 1 page of the "TomasAragon_CDPHemails_Batch1_Redacted.pdf" file contains the same attachment:

* Pages 26, 29 and 30
* Pages 62 and 63
* Pages 65, 71, and 75
* Pages 76 and 84

Please also note, the .png attachments are actually embedded email signature images and we weren't able to download those as separate files. They should be visible to you within the body of the emails that contain that email signature.

This concludes our correction of the problem with attachments that you described at the SOTF hearing. In the future, when we redact portions of PDFs, we will not "flatten" the files.

Thank you.

Warning An exclamation point.

There are too many files to display on this communication. See all files
