    Travel Restrictions
    TSG is closely monitoring travel advisories from relevant public health and governmental authorities where our consultants may travel or where they may currently be working. CDC guidance on travel can be found here.

    Out of an abundance of caution, and in line with current CDC guidance, we request that consultants returning to the U.S. and Canada from mainland China, Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, South Korea, Singapore, Italy and Iran avoid work at TSG and client facilities for at least two weeks upon their return. We also request that anyone returning from these locations that feel ill or have any symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath seek medical care as needed, and not visit or work at TSG or client facilities until you are well and without symptoms.

    Please contact Human Resources if you believe this policy impacts you.
