UNH Student Dies Of COVID-19

A 22-year-old student at the University of New Haven has died due to complications from COVID-19. Joshua Goodart was a cybersecurity and networks major from Oxford. The senior became ill over winter break and was hospitalized last month. The university said he had not yet returned to campus for the spring semester. Goodart passed away February 6. The university's Student Government Association has announced it will host a physically distanced candlelight vigil on Friday, Feb. 12, that will be streamed online. UNH will award Goodart's degree posthumously at Spring Commencement.
