Once a request is submitted, you will receive a response via email within 2 business days of submission to provide an approximate timeline for delivery of data/information requested. Time to completion of the request will depend on the complexity of the request, the priority of the item, and the current workload of staff. If you have any questions regarding your data request or about the process please email the district epidemiologist working on your request. (NOTE: We do not release individual-level data. Data may be limited to protect confidentiality. Not all requests can be filled due to limitations on the data available.)
