Covid19 on the Defence Sites

Date released
7 January 2021
Request number
Release of information under
Freedom of Information Act 2000

Information requested

I'd like to make a freedom of information request for information held on the impact of Covid-19 on the defence sites that ONR regulate (AWE, Barrow, Clyde Naval Base, Devonport, Rolls Royce and Rosyth).

I'd like to request information on confirmed cases within the workforce and the number of workers self-isolating at the sites, as well as summary information about the situation at the sites and in the surrounding community. I understand that this information will not have been collected throughout the year, so I am requesting each category of information over the time(s) it has been collected.

Information released

We try to be as open as possible when answering requests, but your request is very broad and could cover a wide-range of information. Due to the way the information is held on ONR’s systems, gathering it together is likely to involve a cost in excess of the £600 limit set by the government for dealing with FOI requests.

I would like to ask you therefore to specify a time period for your request.
