U.S. Senator Steve Daines urged U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar and HHS Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response Robert Kadlec to ensure Montana has the medical supplies and medicines needed as the state is experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases.

“I write to you to encourage the expeditious review of Montana’s requests for supplies and medicines from the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) to ensure our health care system, first responders, and care facilities are equipped to handle the COVID-19 crisis,” Daines wrote. “As our state is currently experiencing a regional surge in COVID-19 cases, I would urge you to consider Montana’s unique health care needs to ensure we have the personal protective equipment (PPE), ventilators, and other medical equipment necessary to care for patients and combat the coronavirus.”
