FOI & AIE information during Covid-19

In order to slow the spread of Covid 19 Cork City Council is following the HSE guidelines regarding social distancing and Government request that people travel to work for essential services only.

In addition City Council staff deemed non essential have been redeployed to assist the HSE in a variety of roles and internally to work on the  Community Call initiative which was recently launched.

The impact of the above and Covid 19 in general on staff resources and availability  and the need to prioritise critical functions has meant that our ability to deal with FOI/AIE/ GDPR services has been impacted. In particular access to records and response timelines are compromised.

Under the circumstances we ask if possible that requests be put on hold and submitted when this crisis is over to allow staff deal with  essential services at this time.

In the event that it is an emergency, requests should be emailed to foi@corkcity.ie

Thank you for your understanding and patience.
