Breath of fresh air
turlock air quality
The view of the coastal mountains is much better from Turlock lately, due to decreased commuter traffic (FRANKIE TOVAR/The Journal).

Recent stay-at-home orders have made the views from Turlock better, as the decrease in commuting has had an impact on the air quality.

Overall, the Valley has seen progress made on air quality standards. During the 2019-2020 winter season (November through February), the Valley recorded the greatest number of “Good” and “Moderate” Air Quality Index Condition days across all of the counties in the District and for the first time, recorded zero days any county throughout the Valley measured Unhealthy AQI for PM2.5 during the months of the wood burning season.
