Right-to-Know Law Requests

As of March 16, 2020, the Department of Health (DOH) Office Building was closed in accordance with Governor Tom Wolf's guidance on COVID-19 mitigation.  DOH employees are teleworking and are responding to requests made pursuant to Pennsylvania's Right-to-Know Law (RTKL) when able to access records remotely.  Should an RTKL request seek records that are physically located within the DOH Office Building, DOH employees will work with requesters in order to provide a response in a timely manner.

A written request to the Department of Health under the Right-to-Know Law (RTKL) must be addressed to the Agency Open Records Officer:

The regular hours of the Department of Health's RTKL Office is 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Any RTKL request received by the RTKL Office after the close of regular business hours shall be deemed to have been received by that office on the following business day.
