Authorization to release information.

Some public records are protected from inspection and/or copying by state and/or federal law. You may access these records by either:
• Being the person legally authorized to access them; or
• Getting a notarized written authorization from the person with legal access. This authorization must:
– Include a description of the records.
– State the name of the person or persons authorized to inspect and copy the records.
– Be signed and dated by the person with legal access to the records.
Note:
If the records contain information about a disease or a condition usually transmitted through sexual contact, the release authorization must specifically mention sexually transmitted disease.
Authorizations to release information, once submitted to the department, become a part of the public record and the department's files.
