Safe to ride Bay Area Rapid Transit in the Covid-era?

I have a dentist appointment in SF (near our mostly-shuttered office) coming up, and I'll have to come in from the East Bay where I've been working from home. I'm hoping not to deal with $$ garages (which could be full anyway) or 1-hour street parking, so I was just wondering if it'd be relatively safe (i.e. not a Covid hot-zone) to ride BART at the moment. (The office is on Sansome a few blocks from Market, if that helps).

Commute times, South Bay (Northern California)

We are planning to relocate to Northern CA towards the end of the year. While I realize most everything in the Bay Area is still locked down and traffic might not be a significant issue, I am trying to ascertain commute times between locations, with my boyfriend working in Palo Alto and my own work in Cupertino.

Afternoon commute Stanford -> Berkeley: any times better than others?

I'm going to be commuting by car twice a week from Berkeley to Stanford and back. I have some timing flexibility on the way back: I can leave Stanford at 3pm when I finish work, or I can hang around for a while and leave later. How much difference would it make traffic-wise to leave at 3pm vs. 4pm vs. 5pm vs. 6pm? When is peak rush hour on that route and when do things ease up a bit?

Must-sees in the Bay Area?

I am in the San Francisco Bay Area for about two months (East Bay, to be exact). I'm looking for ideas for things to absolutely do before I leave, particularly weekend day trips. I am interested in music, technology, tabletop gaming, art, and the outdoors. Snowflake detail: I am limited to public transport.

BART parking on a weekday when you're not commuting

I stupidly said I'd go to South SF during the lunch hour on a couple of weekdays this week. I forgot that means I'm gonna have to use BART on a weekday and everything will be much more buggered than I'm used to on weekend travel. [more inside]

How do I Bay Area?

I'm going to be hanging out in the Bay Area for 5-6 days in late April/early May, for a mix of seeing family in Menlo Park and fun/touristing. I will probably stay with said family for 1-2 nights, but I want to be in closer to city things and public transit the rest of the time. Where should I stay, and while you're at it, what other activities should I consider? More about what I hope to do under the fold. [more inside]

Best public transit route from Berkeley to Menlo Park, CA

I'm in Berkeley right now (near the Ashby BART station) and am headed down to Menlo Park this afternoon/early evening (today, Friday). It looks like there are two ways I can go: through San Francisco via rail the whole way, or along the East Bay via rail and then via bus across the Dumbarton Bridge. What's the easiest and/or quickest way? [more inside]
