Hi there

A message was sent to you regarding record request #20-2059:

We are acknowledging your Public Records request that we received. In light of the global coronavirus pandemic, including declared State and local San Francisco emergencies, this effort 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).)
