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


This is Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac and today is Monday, November 23.
The Township had 115 new cases of Coronavirus over the weekend with 30 on Friday, 50 on Saturday and 35 on Sunday. There were no new cases in State facilities and no new deaths to report.

The last time we had 50 cases in one day was April 26 when we had 54. Our numbers have been high for the past few weeks but surprisingly steady as our seven day average has ranged between 37 and 42 for the last 10 days. This past weekend’s daily average is right in the middle of that range.

Please remember to be especially careful during the holidays and follow the guidelines of good personal hygiene, mask wearing, social distancing and the limitation on indoor gatherings of 10. If you know someone living alone, especially a senior citizen, give them a call to say hello on Thursday or sometime this weekend.

Our annual Holiday Parade is being restructured and will not be held as the normal daytime parade due to the Covid-19 restrictions. However we will hold a Holiday Light Parade starting at 6:15 PM on Saturday (Nov. 28) on Main Street where all of our Fire Companies and First Aid Squads will join the Police Department, Emergency Management and our Community Emergency Response Team by driving all through the main roads of town with their vehicles lit up for the holidays.

The schedule is on line and you can watch Facebook Live on the TV35 and Mayor Facebook pages and check our route so you can head out when we get close to your section of town. Thanks in advance for all involved in planning this event.
Our Holiday Light Parade Grand Marshall will be Patrick Kenny, our Emergency Management Coordinator, who did a terrific job leading us through this awful pandemic this year. He dealt with the State, County, Board of Education, private sector and health care facilities and worked unbelievably hard to keep everyone as informed and safe as possible. Congratulations, Patrick.

The Woodbridge Senior Billiards Club is collecting new unwrapped toys in a box inside the Woodbridge Community Center through December 11 and David’s Touch Foundation is collecting gift cards on Thurs., Dec. 10 at Curtains Restaurant in Avenel from 6-10 PM. The Sewa Diwali is holding a drive-thru food drive Saturday from 2:00 to 4:00 PM at the School 18 parking lot in Iselin.

There will be no address this Friday, so we will talk to you again on Monday.

So my dopey friend got arrested for breaking into the dress shop on Main Street. The Judge asked him why he did it four nights in a row before being caught and he said. He said “Your Honor, I only wanted to do it once but my girlfriend made me exchange the dress three times”!!!!

Thank you. Have a great Thanksgiving weekend and enjoy your families but please be safe.
