FOI Request - Covid-19 Second Wave
1) For the period between May 1 2020 and present, any forecasting analysis undertaken by the local authority for a potential second wave of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) in Winter 2020 or in 2021 which
a) details the overall financial impact of a second wave for the local authority
b) the potential death and case numbers of a second wave
c) the impact on care homes
d) the impact on schools
e) the impact on council run services
2) Any internal documents, briefing notes or reports circulated to the chief executive and/or council leader detailing plans or contingencies for a potential second wave of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) between the date of May 1 and September 7 2021.
2a) Please consider this request to include draft reports which I argue, given the extremely high public interest in plans to combat a second wave of a deadly pandemic, should be disclosed unless there is a significant barrier against the presumption of disclosure.
The Moray COVID-19 Outbreak Control Plan includes all requested details and so this information is exempt under section 25 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, information otherwise accessible. For ease of reference please find a link to the web page here.
