I still check my little dashboard of San Francisco COVID numbers to figure out when it's safe to do inessential indoor things, eat inside a restaurant, etc, etc. It used to be a dashboard of S.F. and surrounding Bay Area county numbers. But I got those numbers from my local paper's "data desk" and they got their numbers from John Hopkins University, and JHU stopped gathering&distributing their numbers. The San Francisco Department of Public Health still publishes data, so I can still use those. The California sewer experts still update their wastewater spreadsheet, so I still have that.

Is there some handy place to get SF Bay Area county COVID numbers? If so, I'd like to know. If not, that's fine too. Unsurprisingly, when I was looking at them, the neighboring-county numbers were pretty close to the this-county numbers. When S.F. numbers get low enough for me to consider excursions to Oakland or whatever, there's no reason to think Oakland will be a "hot zone" or what-have-you.
