Indeed, the Times obit linked to above says:
Quote
Mr. Hagan did not specify the cause but said Mr. Rogers had been in hospice care. Mr. Rogers retired from performing for health reasons in 2018.

CNN does say:

Quote
Although Rogers certainly deserves a prominent memorial to pay homage to his decades-long career, he won’t be getting one. His family released a statement explaining they will be holding a private ceremony because of the national emergency. A public memorial may follow at a later date.

Perhaps that is the source of the confusion.

Another Coronavirus victim: Playwright Terrence McNally, four-time Tony winner.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/24/theater/terrence-mcnally-dead-coronavirus.html



Quote
Mr. McNally’s Tony Awards attest to his versatility. Two were for books for musicals, “Kiss of the Spider Woman” (1993) and “Ragtime” (1998), and two were for plays, and vastly different ones: “Love! Valour! Compassion!” (1995), about gay men who share a vacation house, and “Master Class” (1996), in which the opera diva Maria Callas reflects on her career.

And those prize winners were only a small part of his oeuvre. With some three dozen plays to his credit, as well as the books for 10 musicals, the librettos for four operas and a handful of screenplays for film and television, Mr. McNally was a remarkably prolific and consistent dramatist.

He was also a frequent panelist on the "Texaco Opera Quiz," which is a long-running feature in the Metropolitan Opera's Saturday broadcasts. Always one of the best-informed, and wittiest.

I thought Dennehy was great in Silverado.  It’s one of my all time favorite westerns.

My favourite rocker R.I.P Little Richard.... powerhouse rock n roller and an influence on so many.
I only saw him live once.. around 1991 in San Diego and he was still so good.. A real innovator and such a showman...

I was a fan of King of Queens. I guess this means there won’t be a revival of that show. I can’t see it working without Arthur Spooner.

Surprised no one posted Roy Horn's obit here ... what with all the interest in Tiger King lately:

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/08/obituaries/roy-horn-dead-covid.html

Roy Horn, Who Dazzled Audiences as Half of Siegfried & Roy, Dies at 75

He and his partner mesmerized crowds for decades, using a stunning mix of magic, costumes and exotic animals. He died of complications of Covid-19.

Roy Horn, who levitated tigers, made elephants disappear, turned himself into a python and mesmerized Las Vegas audiences for decades as half of the famed illusionist team Siegfried & Roy, died on Friday in Las Vegas. He was 75.

The cause was complications of Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, according to his publicist, Dave Kirvin. Mr. Horn, who lived in Las Vegas, tested positive for the virus last week and died at MountainView Hospital, Mr. Kirvin said.
