Dear Mr. Duff:

The Division of Epidemiology, Environmental and Occupational Health (EEOH) received your Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request below. Additional time is needed to respond to this request. OPRA allows custodians extensions of time pursuant to N.J.S.A. 47:1A-5.i. Specifically, OPRA states that “the requester shall be advised by the custodian when the record can be made available. If the record is not made available by that time, access shall be deemed denied.” Your request requires an extension of time until August 5, 2020. Thank you for your patience during this time.

Sincerely,
Steven Bors
