COVID-19 Information

MAYOR JOHN E. McCORMAC CODE RED_COVID-19 MONDAY, APRIL 6, 2020

This is Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac and today is Monday, April 6.
The Township had its worst day so far with 80 new cases of Coronavirus reported to us in the last 24 hours which brings our total to 381. All of the experts have pointed to this week as likely being the peak In terms of positive tests and our numbers certainly support that.
We do not have details about all 80 cases yet but for those we have we still cannot determine any clustering by area of town.
We continue to encourage our residents to avoid all non-essential travel and to practice social distancing. Please practice good personal hygiene and please make sure to discard gloves, masks and wipes in the regular trash instead of on the ground or in the sanitary sewer.
If you have elderly neighbors or if you live near anyone who lives alone please take the time to check and make sure they are ok. Please remember not to give out any personal, financial or banking information over the phone or on-line. Federal financial assistance is forthcoming but no government official will be contacting you about those programs so please hang up on anyone who tries.
The Township consistently reminds our businesses to separate people who are shopping or standing in line to check out. There are very few cases of public gatherings but we are breaking up any we see.

It is getting tougher and tougher to keep busy as the days go by but you can find terrific information and entertainment by referring to our Township web site, our Library web site, our social media pages and our Channel 35 television station. You can find any book or magazine or movie you want and you can take an exercise class or you can access children’s programs or senior seminars.
I would also like to recognize and thank Mr. Patrick Kenny, our Emergency Management Coordinator, who has done an unbelievable job this last month. We have not had issues with supplies or equipment and our employees have what they need thanks to Pat’s efforts and leadership. He has been a steady leader in very difficult times and people in Woodbridge Township are undoubtedly safer thanks to Patrick and his team.
Please remember to keep sending us you children’s art work or other creations they have made while cooped up in the house. If your family is coloring Easter Eggs this week please also send us those pictures. Use the email address of wbmayor@twp.woodbridge.nj.us and we will share the pictures on our web site and social media pages.
Thank you and please be safe.
