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.
