I am appealing the rejection in its entirety, as I did not ask for "broad categories of records containing only the name/nickname of the virus", but rather specific information related to a limited, specific office.

From: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Good afternoon Emma,

Appeals for CDC matters should be sent to FOIARequest@PSC.hhs.gov .

When submitting your appeal you should attach your initial request and any other relevant correspondence with CDC.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can be of additional assistance.
Thanks,
Brandon
