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

The Township had our worst week since April with 179 new cases of Coronavirus in the last seven days. Thankfully there were no new deaths to report.

Despite that bad week, the November daily average number of cases was just over 17 and we had almost 20 in August and almost 23 in September.

So did you know the guy who invented the ferris wheel never met the guy who invented the merry-go-round. It seems they travelled in different circles.

Thank you. Stay safe and have a great weekend.
