SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Two local public health officials will be virtual guests to President Joe Biden's address to Congress Wednesday.
Santa Barbara County Public Health director Dr. Van Do-Reynoso and San Luis Obispo County Public Health director Dr. Penny Borenstein will be the guests of Congressman Salud Carbajal.
"Throughout this pandemic, we have turned to our local public health departments to disseminate accurate information and guide our COVID-19 response. I'm honored to have two heroes of the pandemic who played a key role leading our COVID-19 response join me as guests for President Biden's address to Congress," said Rep. Carbajal.
The Joint Address, which is President Biden's first speech to Congress, marks 100 days into the President's first term.
Attendance at Wednesday's event in Washington, D.C. will be limited because of COVID-19. Members of Congress are usually allowed to bring constituents as guests for these speeches.
