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


This is Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac and today is Friday, July 23.
The Township had our worst week in a long time with 63 new cases of Coronavirus from the public in the last seven days – three on Friday, five each on Saturday and Sunday, 10 each on Monday and Tuesday, nine on Wednesday and then a whopping 21 yesterday.

These cases span all age groups and include 18 individuals under the age of 21. We do not get information to determine what percentage of people getting COVID-19 have been vaccinated. In Woodbridge 75% of our eligible residents have received one dose of the vaccine and 68% have received both doses. The State has not announced any new restrictions but we can all be careful especially with the new Delta variant which is causing case numbers to rise all over the country.

The Township will have another vaccination clinic on Thursday, July 29, from 3-5 p.m. at our Health Center for both first and second doses and walk-ins are welcome.

Tonight at 7:30 PM is An Evening with the Woodbridge Community Players at our concert field behind Woodbridge High School featuring twelve years of summer plays recreated with many of the original performers.

Middlesex County is having a food drive from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM tomorrow at Woodbridge Center in the Sears parking lot. Our Farmer’s Market continues tomorrow with new fruit and produce every week from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM in the Town Hall parking lot.

Our National Night Out will be Tues., Aug. 3 from 6:00 – 9:00 PM at the Woodbridge Community Center with free food, a dunk tank, rock wall and miniature golf, along with our first responders and their specialty vehicles for pictures with the kids. Vaccinations will also be offered there.

Our upcoming concerts include the Guthrie Brothers covering musical duos on Sunday. The Cameos on Monday. A tribute band to Ray Charles called Forever Ray on Tuesday. A singer called Nella on Wednesday and Shore Soundz on Thursday. A special Friday night concert next week on the stage in the parking lot of Curtains Restaurant at 7:30 PM will feature a band for the younger generation called Nine Dees Night.

So my dopey friend locked his keys in his car and he called me in a panic to bring him a coat hanger so he could slide it down the window to open the door handle. He said, “Hurry up, Mac, I have to get my family out of the car right away.”
Thank you and have a great weekend.
