MAYOR JOHN E. McCORMAC COVID-19_TV-35 MESSAGE MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2020 This is Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac and today is Monday, September 28.Recent trends in the number of new cases of Coronavirus in Woodbridge have followed the national, state and county trends with small upticks in September compared to the summer.Woodbridge has 19 new Covid19 cases within the general public over the weekend with seven on Friday, five on Saturday and seven on Sunday plus one new State facility case. We are happy to report no new deaths in our community.September is just four cases away from being our highest month besides April and May with just a few days left. August had 105 cases, July had 116 and June had 160 with September at 156. This just proves that we cannot lighten up on following the State guidelines regarding social distancing, mask wearing and watching the limits on gatherings. We are keeping good tabs on our seniors, especially those who are homebound, and we can always use your assistance to check on them also.On the community side, thanks to everyone who helped clean and beautify our Township on Saturday for National Public Lands Day, especially our Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.This Saturday and Sunday are the garage sales and yard sales throughout the Iselin section of town and the following weekend is Colonia.The Avenel Performing Arts Center reopens Thursday night with reduced capacity so check their web site for the schedule. Curtains Restaurant remains open outside and inside within the limits and there is plenty of live music to keep you entertained on weekends.We are easing back to our usual hectic schedule with outdoor events like the St. James Outdoor Flea Market in the Church parking lot from 8-3 on Saturday and the Cub Scout Pack 53 car wash at the Oros Wildlife Preserve in Avenel from 11-2.North and South Park Drives have socially distant boxes marked out for our Frank Gagnon Memorial Fishing Derby for the kids on Saturday from 9-11.Woodbridge schools are reopening with a modified schedule on October 12 and our Township employees will be certain that the facilities are cleaned and sanitized and safe for the children, teachers and staff.On Thursday, October 1, Josie and Mike Valillo of Avenel will be celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary. Imagine that. They are proud charter members of the Woodbridge Senior Billiards Club. Happy Anniversary.So my dopey friend went for a job interview last week and the recruiter said “Our first requirement is that our new employee be responsible” and my buddy said “That’s great. I am your man. At my last job whenever anything went wrong they said I was responsible.”Thank you and stay safe.
