The following excerpt comes from the Chronicle of Higher Education’s live blog:

An assistant professor of nursing at Carroll University died of Covid-19 on Friday, marking the program’s second loss since November.

James Mikolajczak-LaRosa, a nurse who had taught at the small Wisconsin college since 2016, was diagnosed with the disease two months ago, according to WISN, and died on New Year’s Day.

His death followed that of Kelly Raether, a local fire-department captain who was also a nurse and instructor at the university. Raether died in November after contracting the coronavirus while caring for a patient, co-workers told WISN.
