Atlanta, Ga. — This week, during the U.S. Senate recess, Senator Jon Ossoff met with Georgia constituents and key state leaders to hear how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted them and discuss relief efforts he is championing in Washington.
On Thursday, Sen. Ossoff visited Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta to see how the hospital has worked to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and serve the community. He toured one of the hospital’s vaccination sites, its OBGYN wing, and its world-renowned trauma center. He also met with hospital administration officials to discuss how he is working to deliver substantial funding to boost vaccination and testing efforts in Georgia.
Thursday afternoon, Sen.

He also virtually met with leaders of the eight Feeding America food banks in Georgia to learn more about their work to defeat food insecurity and brief them on how he is working to deliver Georgia families economic relief in the upcoming COVID-19 relief bill.
