NEW YORK (AP) — Actors Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson said Wednesday on social media that they have been diagnosed with novel Coronavirus.

“Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches,” he wrote on Instagram. “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 Coronavirus, and were found to be positive.

“Well, now. What do we do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed,” he continued. “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?”

Hanks and Wilson, both 63-years-old, said they will be “tested, observed and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires.”
