Daily particle levels were within national benchmarks from 79% of the time at Stockton and 100% at all other sites. Stockton particle levels are affected by sea salt due to its proximity to the coast. Hourly particle levels were in the good to fair air quality categories from 98.1% to 100% of the time throughout the region. Regional air quality was greatly improved compared to summer 2019–20 and earlier years.
