Delaware only does notifications for CODE ORANGE days. Minnesota does notifications at the lower CODE YELLOW level.
Maybe this is because the air in Delaware is CODE Yellow very often, especially in the summer, and state officials don’t want to remind Delawareans of this reality.
Wednesday, July 29, 2015, is another Code Orange bad air day.

Sunday and Monday are forecast to be
CODE ORANGE bad air days for OZONE.
In addition, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday are forecast to be CODE YELLOW bad air days for fine particles (PM 2.5).
In addition, an
excessive heat warning is in effect with forecast heat index values over one hundred for both Sunday and Monday afternoons.
As we have noted many times these “stressors” add up and we would consider the combination of multiple air pollutants, heat, and humidity to add up to CODE RED. Please take care.
