The spread of coronavirus continues.
Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have tested positive for COVID-19.
According to Deadline, both actors were in Australia for the pre-production of Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley film. Hanks is set to play Presley’s longtime manager Colonel Tom Parker.
Hanks revealed the news via Instagram:
“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.
“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 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!”
