Here is the data from my county. I feel well informed and that the information is both easily accessible, but presented in an informative way and I appreciate the frequent updates to this site throughout the day....
I have not seen other places with such information presented or as up to date. My mom in Alabama has to dig a bit to find the information as do counties just next to me here in Colorado. I think that is the frustrating part, at this stage I'd have thought the numbers would tell the tale but with it not all being as forthcoming, I can see how places like South Dakota ended up in the condition they are in.
WA state has fairly comprehensive dashboards:

As does King County (most populated county in the state, where I live):

I would guess that many other states/counties have similar information available. But I have not actually checked that, so I could well be wrong. At least for now, I don't plan any travel, so I haven't needed to look for this info for other areas.
As far as "how things are going in your area?"... In WA state the numbers are going up. Last week a bunch of restrictions were (re)enacted, closing indoor dining at restaurants, bowling alleys, etc. I do not think the numbers will flatten or drop over the holidays, so I'm expecting that in January there will be a return to a full lockdown where "non essential" businesses are closed.
Anecdotally, I was at a local big grocery store earlier today. I try to do my shopping very early or very late to avoid crowds, but I was already out and didn't want to make another trip later today, so I went in to pick up a few things. It looked like it did every year on the day before Thanksgiving: extremely crowded and very busy. In theory, all stores in WA are supposed to be restricting occupancy to 25% of the space's rating. And while everyone was wearing masks, I am quite sure this store was not at 25% occupancy -- it was more like 80-90% full. So if this is typical of other stores, it's no surprise the numbers are going up.
