Sergeant Robert Rogers died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty while assigned to the Graceville Work Camp in Graceville, Florida.

His wife presumably contracted COVID-19 from him and they both died within one hour of each other.

Sergeant Rogers had served with the Florida Department for Corrections for 29 years.

Beginning in early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic due to requirements of their job. Many of these first responders have died as a result of COVID-19, and continue to do so as the virus spreads across the United States.
