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


This is Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac and today is Friday, May 14.
The numbers keep declining in Woodbridge as we had only 37 new cases of Coronavirus from the general public in the Township over the last four days with seven on Monday, 11 on Tuesday, 12 on Wednesday and seven again on Thursday. Our three day and seven day rolling averages now stand at 10 which is a number we have not seen in the last seven months.

There were no new cases in outside facilities, but we do have bad news to report with the passing of three individuals from Woodbridge from COVID-19 – a 79 year-old male and two females aged 68 and 93. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

The Township still has availability for vaccinations at our Health Center and the next session is Tuesday from 3:00 to 5:30 PM. Appointments can be made by calling: 732-855-0600 extension 5004 and walk-ins will be accepted.

Governor Murphy has eliminated the outdoor gathering limit but people still need to be socially distant. For all of the rules on indoor gatherings please refer to our Township web site.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has eased mask requirements and we will report any new guidelines from the State as soon as we have them.

Our Annual Yard Sales are back and they start tomorrow and Sunday in the Avenel, Port Reading, Sewaren and Woodbridge proper sections of town. Next weekend will be Fords, Keasbey, Hopelawn and Menlo Park Terrace. There are no sales on Memorial Day weekend and June 5 and 6 will be the Iselin section of town and June 12 and 13 will be the Colonia section.

Special trash pickups can be scheduled after the sales by calling: 732-738-1311 extension 3600 and remember that items cannot be brought in from outside of town for these pickups. Tell Aunt Millie from Millburn to call her own Public Works Department to pick up that old couch.

We are holding a Summer Job Fair tomorrow from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the Woodbridge Community Center for applicants of any age. Jobs are available at the Center, The Club at Woodbridge, at our various summer and sports camps and at Curtains Restaurant and the Avenel Performing Arts Center.

The Woodbridge Community Players are holding auditions for their summer performance and the link to their web site is on our web site.

Thank you to Lillian of Colonia for your donation to We Feed Woodbridge.
So my dopey friend told me he signed up for his company’s 401k but that he was very nervous about it. I told him it was a good move and asked him why he was worried. He said he has never run more than a 10k before.

Thank you and stay safe.
