Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson have tested positive for coronavirus

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have tested positive for coronavirus. According to Deadline, the couple was in Australia for pre-production for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming (as yet untitled) Elvis Presley film in which Tom is playing Presley’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker.

Hanks posted an update to his Instagram page tonight:

“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,” his caption began.

“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!”

Both Hanks and Wilson are 63. The couple has been married for nearly 32 years, and have two children together. Hanks also has two children from a previous marriage

Deadline was the first media outlet to break the news.
