Hello, Mr. Nash--

Your November 8 message of request was received by the Department of Health
Professions (DHP).

As the keeper of records that may correspond to your request is out of
pocket and Monday, November 12 government offices are closed in recognition
of Veterans Day, can you share what kind of deadline you are working

DHP seeks to be responsive as soon as reasonably possible.

Thank you,



Diane Powers

Director of Communications

Virginia Department of Health Professions
