MAYOR JOHN E. McCORMAC MAYOR MESSAGE TV35_COVID-19 MONDAY, JANUARY 25, 2021

This is Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac and today is Monday, January 25.

The Township had 167 new cases of Coronavirus from the general public over the weekend with 83 on Friday, 41 on Saturday and 43 on Sunday. Our seven day rolling average is down to 55 after being over 80 for three days in early January so things are moving in the right direction.

There were no new cases in outside facilities but we unfortunately have to report the passing of a 65 year-old male from Covid-19. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

The Township continues to vaccinate people at our Health Center, but like all other sites we could do more if we had more doses.

People can still register at: covidvaccine.nj.gov and then you will receive two emails. The first, entitled COVID-19 Vaccination – Phase 1A, simply lets you know you are registered and on the list.

The second, entitled COVID-19 Vaccine – Schedule Your Appointment, provides a link that you click on to see what sites have available time slots. You can choose any site in the State and we recommend that you take advantage of any opportunity to get inoculated.

You can also get a vaccine independently of the State through Robert Wood Johnson Barnabas Health which has a mega-site in the Exposition Center in Raritan Center just a couple of miles outside of the Fords section of town. That web site is: rwjbh.org/covid19vaccine and if you can get an appointment there you should due to the high demand for slots and the short supply.

If you need transportation to either the Woodbridge Health Center or the Raritan Center site we will provide it so please call 732-726-2394.

If you have any questions at all, our Senior Center Coordinators are ready to help so please call 732-726-6264.

All of this information, including samples of the forms and a list of all sites in the State, are on the Township web site and our social media pages.

Please remember that we do not control who can get an appointment, even at our own site, as this is handled by the State.

The Township is putting brine down on our busier streets in anticipation of a weather event tomorrow which right now looks like rain and sleet and not snow.
The Club at Woodbridge has free enrollment fees through the end of January if you are looking for help with your New Year’s resolution.

Preschool registration at KidSports at The Club has begun so call 732-634-5000 to schedule a tour.

We are now running a Woodbridge wide girls softball league for kids from kindergarten through 9th grade with a goal toward participation. You can call 732-596-4048 or email: recreationdepartment@twp.woodbridge.nj.us.

So the Past, the Present and the Future all walked into a bar. It was tense.

Thank you and stay safe.
