LOS ANGELES - Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks and his wife actress Rita Wilson have tested positive for the coronavirus.
This according to a statement from Hanks himself on his Twitter account posted Wednesday.
"Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita has some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive."

"Well, now. "What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks' will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety required. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?"
"We'll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves! Hanx!"
On Thursday, Hanks shared an update with his social media followers.
"Hello folks. @ritawilson and I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us. We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one-day-at-a-time. There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no? Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball. Hanx"
Hanks and Wilson were in Australia working on a film, according to reports.
