Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson Test Positive for Coronavirus

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have announced that they have tested positive for coronavirus.

The couple, both 63, revealed the news in a statement on Wednesday (March 11) that they were tested while they are in Australia as Tom films the upcoming Elvis Presley biopic.

“Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had 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,” Tom wrote on Instagram.

“Well, now. What to do next,” Tom continued. “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 requires. 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!”

In the past, Tom has spoken out about his type 2 diabetes diagnosis.
