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


This is Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac and today is Monday, April 12.
We finally have some better numbers to report with only 107 new cases of Coronavirus from the general public in Woodbridge over the weekend with 33 on Friday, 39 on Saturday and 35 on Sunday. That makes four straight days in the 30s after three straight days averaging over 50. Let’s hope that this is a new downward trend as more people get vaccinated.

There were no new cases in State or outside facilities and thankfully there are no new deaths to report which is the best news of all.

Let’s stay with the program and follow State guidelines for social distancing, good personal hygiene, mask wearing and the honoring of indoor and outdoor limits on gatherings. Please always keep an eye on your neighbors who are homebound or living alone.

Although things are starting to open up a bit, we recognize that the holding of our annual Fireworks display in 10 weeks will probably not be permitted as we would need the outdoor gathering limit to be lifted entirely. We are calling it a postponement for now in case we can get something scheduled for the fall but there definitely will not be Fireworks as we planned on July 3.

Thank you once again to all the people who have worked during our vaccination clinics including Joanne who handles the appointments and her Health Department colleagues along with the Senior Services team under Michele Morgan who respond to all the calls on our Hotline. After each session we are inundated with calls and emails telling us how well the sessions have run. We appreciate the job all of you do.

Our Township girl’s softball league run by Bobby Timinski started successfully on Saturday and the boy’s baseball and t-ball leagues in Colonia, Fords and Woodbridge all had their first games. Thank you to all League leaders, managers, coaches and parents who made this experience possible for our youngsters.
There is a blood drive at Town Hall on Wednesday, April 21 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Call 877-258-4825 or log-on to to donate which is only by appointment.

Woodbridge High School’s annual play will be The Putnam County Spelling Bee outdoors on our stage on the concert field behind the school on April 22, 23 and 24 at 7:00 PM and Sunday April 25 at 2:00 PM. Tickets are $10.00. Call 732-602-8600 for more information.

There is a clothing drive at Pennsylvania Ave. School 27 tomorrow (Tues., April 13). Please drop you clothes between doors 5 and 6.

So one of the ladies in the office asked me to stop singing “I’m a Believer” by the Monkees because she said it was very annoying. At first I thought she was kidding. “But then I saw her face ……..”

Thank you and stay safe.
