Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson: Australian Officials Reveal Where They Likely Contracted Coronavirus

Government officials in Australia are speaking out about the new cases of Coronavirus in the country, which include Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.

The officials from Queensland Health did not specifically name Tom and Rita, but they did say that all of the new patients are non-contact cases and they are believed to have “contracted the illness outside Australia and traveled to Queensland with the virus,” according to THR. Because of this, officials believe the couple contracted the virus in the United States or while traveling to Australia.

Tom and Rita were in Australia for over a week before they were diagnosed with COVID-19 and they are currently in isolation in a hospital on the Gold Coast for 14 days.

While details of the couple’s movements around Australia have not yet been made public, they are reportedly helping officials trace their whereabouts. We do know that Rita made several promo appearances for her music in the past week, including appearances across Brisbane and Sydney.

Production on Tom‘s upcoming Elvis movie has been shut down and everyone working on the film has been sent home upon further instructions.
