Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson revealed on Instagram that they both tested positive for the coronavirus while they were in Australia.

Tom is currently filming Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley movie.

“Hello, folks,” he wrote. “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?” 

It’s unclear what will happen to the film’s production, but at the end of the day… does it matter?

Please take care of yourself out there. If you’re not feeling well, stay home.
