COVID-19 Information

MAYOR JOHN E. McCORMAC CODE RED_COVID-19 THURSDAY, APRIL 9, 2020

This is Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac and today is Thursday, April 9.
After two reasonably low daily counts of reported cases the Township had 77 in the last 24 hours which is our second highest daily total yet bringing our grand total to 537. The cases are across all age groups and they are located through all areas of the Township. The youngest is a 7 year old girl but there is at least one other positive case in the household. Our Health Department has not yet completed its investigation into this case but we are finding many cases of multiple people that live together being sick at the same time.
We have not been getting reports of deaths of Woodbridge residents from Covid-19 from any official sources. Hospitals have not been able to keep up with breaking down numbers by town and death certificates are coming in with PENDING in the box for Cause of Death or sometimes even with that box blank. However, we know from calls we are getting and calls we are making that some more of our residents have passed away from complications of Coronavirus and we should always keep them in our thoughts and prayers.
The vast majority of people we are calling from our earliest lists of victims have reported being symptom-free and back to work. That is the best news we can hear.
Our staff put together a list of religious services from our many Houses of Worship that you can view on television or on-line for the next week and you can find that listing on our Township web site and social media pages. There are very holy days this month for Passover, Ramadan, Baisakhi and Easter so when you worship please pray for an end to this Coronavirus nightmare.
This weekend our various Fire Departments are touring Woodbridge with the Easter Bunny. Scheduled times are also on our web site and Facebook pages or you can also check the Department’s pages and web sites. No matter what your age – when you hear the sirens just stand on your porch or wave out the window. It is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and make you forget this ordeal, even if only for a few minutes. It might be egg-zactly what you need.
Keep sending in your art work and also send pictures of the Easter Bunny this weekend to wbmayor@twp.woodbridge.nj.us.
Enjoy your celebrations this weekend – be safe – enjoy your families – and take care of each other.
