COVID is still active in Woodbridge, wear a mask & social distance.


This is Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac and today is Friday, January 28.
The Township had 420 new cases of Coronavirus from the general public in the last week. Over our nearly two year history with weekly numbers that is on the high side, but when the last three weeks were 2,698, 1,631 and 705, the 420 is a much better number. New cases are clearly declining in Woodbridge just like the rest of the County and State.

There were 30 additional cases in State facilities and, unfortunately, we have one death to report of a 96-year-old male from COVID-19. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

The Township has vaccination clinics planned in our Health Center for adults 12 and up the next two Thursdays from 3:00 to 6:00 PM on February 3 and 10 and a clinic for children aged 5-11 on Tues., Feb. 8 from 4:00 to 6:00 PM. Please call to make an appointment in advance at 732-855-0600 extension 5004.

Half of our children aged 5-11 have at least one dose and 82% of our teens aged 12-17 have at least one. For those 18 and over the number is a whopping 94% and literally just about every senior in town has received at least one dose.

Our Have-A-Heart Food Drive continues until Valentine’s Day. We are asking businesses to donate $214 or 214 pounds of food to help those in need. Checks can be sent to Town Hall at 1 Main St. or the Health Center at 2 George Frederick Plaza, both Woodbridge, NJ 07095. Food can be dropped at both places or also the Community Center at 600 Main Street or we can pick it up if you call 732-855-0600 extension 5034.

The Woodbridge Police Department is hosting a Silent Memorial Vigil to honor Police Officers Killed-In-The-Line-Of-Duty on Thurs., Feb. 3 at 6:00 PM in the Town Hall parking lot.

The Club at Woodbridge just hired Kevin Maciorowski, the head Golf Pro at the Colonia Country Club, to give lessons at our Golf Den at The Club. Open Houses to meet Kevin and see our Trackman technology where you can play just about any golf course in the world will be held Tues., Feb. 1 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM and Thurs., Feb. 3 from 4:00 to 8:00 PM.

The Township has positions open for Crossing Guards. We also have openings for lifeguards at each of our four pools which is a great opportunity for high school and college students to have a job that you can keep for many years. For more information on both, call 732-634-4500 extension 2125.

So did you hear about the snowman who got really, really angry when the sun came out? I guess you could say he had a total meltdown.

Thank you. Stay warm. Stay safe. And, stay home. We will have a storm update call in the next couple of hours.
