PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Pittsburgh along with Beaver County are preparing for a visit from the United States Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar.
Ahead of his visit, former Vice President and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden provided KDKA with an exclusive statement regarding Secretary Azar’s visit to the region:
“Secretary Azar’s time would be better spent in his office finding real solutions to this catastrophic pandemic than posing for photo-ops in Pittsburgh. If he wants to visit the Commonwealth, he should instead head to Harrisburg to hear from the Republican legislators who covered up the positive coronavirus test of one of their own members on why they put hundreds of legislators, staff, and their families at risk.”
According to our news partners at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Secretary Azar will be participating in a roundtable discussion regarding how to safely get Americans back to work with the Allegheny Conference.
He is also planning to meet with leaders at the Heritage Valley Beaver Medical Center and the Beaver County Commissioners.
