Updated: September 8, 2021

We love seeing improvement!

As of today, the city of San Antonio has moved out of the red zones (severe & critical) and is now in the yellow zone. (moderate)

Therefore, TSAOG Orthopaedics & Spine continue to require all our providers & staff to be fully masked, and optional for patients and visitors to wear a mask when entering any of our facilities as we use the same city risk levels.

Just a friendly reminder at this time, below are our current mask guidelines for patients and visitors.

  • Green Zones – mask use optional
  • Yellow Zone – mask use requested
  • Red Zones – mask use required

We appreciate your patience as we work quickly as possible to help protect our community.
