MAYOR JOHN E. McCORMAC COVID-19_TV-35 MESSAGE FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2020 This is Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac and today is Friday, September 18.Well, if Woodbridge was playing poker this week we would be in good shape with four of a kind. The Township had 16 new cases of Coronavirus over the last four days with four on Monday, four on Tuesday, four on Wednesday and four yesterday. There were no new cases in any other facilities and thankfully no new deaths to report.I guess that makes our three day running average – let me see – oh yeah, FOUR!!!Contact tracing is showing connections between many of the cases but nothing on a large scale that would be a cause for concern.Please keep up with the guidelines on social distancing and mask wearing and adhere to the limits on gatherings and always check on your neighbors.Sunday will be our vigil to Woodbridge residents who passed in the last six months from Covid-19 or any other cause who did not have a proper wake or funeral due to capacity restrictions. We have members of the clergy, a choir and a bagpiper and family members can gather to grieve and celebrate the lives of their loved ones. The ceremony is at 2:00 PM on the concert field behind Woodbridge High School and will be followed at 4:00 PM by another event where we thank our health care worker heroes and first responders who put their lives in jeopardy caring for others.To nominate someone for either event please go to: register.communitypass.net/townshipofwoodbridge.We are down to the final days of the 2020 census effort so if you have not signed up please go to 2020census.gov on your computer.Tomorrow from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM is the Farmer’s Market in the Town Hall parking lot and from Noon to 5:00 PM is the Hispanic Heritage Cultural Fest around the corner at Tanzman Park on Pearl Street in front of the Woodbridge train station.A special shout out to a 98 year-old World War II veteran of the US Army Air Corps from Colonia named John P. Solvik. John was honored by the USA Warriors Stories organization during the seventh inning stretch of the Wednesday night Yankee game for his courageous service to our country. How cool is that? John has been a Yankee fan for 85 years and his favorite player was Joe DiMaggio. He never saw Babe Ruth play but he did see Lou Gehrig. Congratulations John and thank you for your service and thanks to the other John for letting us know about this. So my dopey friend was walking downtown yesterday when a Minister asked him where the Post Office was. My friend told him and the Minister thanked him and then invited him to his service Sunday where he would tell his congregation how to get to heaven. My friend said “No thanks. You don’t even know how to get to the Post Office.”Thank you. Stay safe and have a great weekend. # # #
