How do you balance saving lives with saving the economy? Doctors and decision-makers are trying to figure that out.

“It’s challenging because a lot of our patients have less work and they’re out of work and many smaller businesses are struggling to pay the bills,” said Pamela Valenza, the chief health officer at Clínica Tepeyac, a community clinic in Globeville that offers free COVID-19 tests. “And so it’s understandable,” she said about the city still being largely open, adding, “I don’t know what the right answer is.”
