This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.
Problem: The hreflang is not displaying correctly in the secondary language.
On this ticket, this was not being displayed correctly because the client had not translated the site content.
The hreflang is only displayed when the post/page content is translated. Otherwise, having only a single language, hreflang, is not required and therefore is not displayed.
