About Recovery Operations

Recovery Operations coordinates and facilitates the university's operational response to COVID-19. The team provides the latest guidance, monitors trends and maintains the online COVID-19 Cases Dashboard

Our Triggers Monitoring Team assesses our local risk level to determine the need for adjustments to campus operations, protocols and procedures. The team, which includes UTSA's chief medical officer, evaluates current and emerging pandemic conditions using information and data provided by sources including the CDC, State of Texas, UT System and San Antonio Metro Health.
