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


This is Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac and today is Friday, October 15.
Woodbridge had another relatively low number of new cases of Coronavirus this week with 96 that is consistent with last week’s total of 89. That follows nine straight weeks of weekly totals of over 100 so we are clearly moving in the right direction.

The Township will hold another vaccination clinic at our Health Center from 3:00 to 6:00 PM on Thursday and we have all doses of all brands of vaccines.
Unfortunately, we have to report deaths of a 66-year-old female and an 87-year-old male from COVID-19 this week, so please keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers.

Our percentages of population with at least one dose of the vaccine are: 74% for ages 12-17, 81% for 18-29, 79% for 30-49, 85% for 50-64, just short of 100% for 65-79 and 79% for those over 80.

Our Farmer’s Market is finished for the year.

There are multiple ways for people to vote this year. You can request a mail-in ballot either on-line or in person from the Township Clerk’s office and it must be postmarked by October 26 to ensure that your vote will count. Mail-in ballots can also be dropped-off in the drop boxes located in front of Town Hall and at the Main Library on Route 35 any time before 8:00 PM on Election Day.

Early In-Person voting can be done at the Acacia Youth Center (formerly the Hungarian Club, at 95 Port Reading Avenue) from October 23-31 with hours of 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM on Mondays through Saturdays and 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Sundays. Finally, you can always vote in person on Election Day from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM where you normally vote.
