Tom Hanks says him and his wife, Rita, had tested positive for Coronavirus while in Australia. The two are there because he is getting set to film a movie about Elvis Presley.

According to the New York Times, Hanks said, “Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia,” said in a statement. “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.”

He added that he and Ms. Wilson “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,” he said.
