County health departments in the Bay Area have issued a joint set of criteria to guide them in deciding when and how much to allow the region to tiptoe out of its current forced hibernation. For those who want to access the kind of COVID-19 data that public health officials are staring at in order to divine the right conditions for loosening restrictions, we've curated some of the best resources for tracking the numbers.
First up is the California Health and Human Services Agency's dashboard, which is chock-full of California case statistics and hospital data, sorted by every county in the state. We also included data dashboards for the Bay Area, the U.S. and the world.
