The president of Martin Luther College in New Ulm is now recuperating at home after being hospitalized for COVID-19.
The college announced Monday that President Mark Zarling had been diagnosed with the disease and was in emergency care at a local hospital. Zarling was the first known case of coronavirus reported in Brown County.
A post on social media Friday evening indicated that Zarling had been released and was “recuperating steadily at home.”
Thank you, dear friends,” Zarling said in a statement, “for your prayers and asking Jesus to uphold me.”
