ELM GROVE — School Sisters of Notre Dame in Elm Grove confirm that their campus is currently COVID-19-free, after an outbreak last December left nine sisters dead due to coronavirus complications.

A spokesperson tells TMJ4 News Friday that the last sister to pass from the virus was on Dec. 22.

On Dec. 16, TMJ4 News reported that an outbreak had left eight sisters dead, and that a number of the 88 sisters living at Notre Dame of Elm Grove had tested positive for the virus. The death toll there has since risen to nine.

Public records confirmed the identities of the sisters who passed away in December in Elm Grove. Obituaries of sisters who have passed away at School Sisters of Notre Dame are listed on the organization's website.

The outbreak comes after six nuns at Our Lady of Angels Convent in Greenfield died from COVID-19 in less than a month.
