Forrest Gump actor Tom Hanks and his wife, actress and singer Rita Wilson, have been diagnosed with Coronavirus. Hanks shared the news on his social media pages Wednesday from Australia where the couple are staying while Hanks is preparing to film the untitled Elvis Presley film for Warner Bros. Hanks is set to play Elvis’s manager Colonel Tom Parker.

In the statement posted to Instagram, Hanks shared details of their Coronavirus symptoms and diagnosis, saying: “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.”

Hanks went on to add that they will follow the necessary protocols and remain quarantined while taking things one day at a time.

“We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires,” Tom wrote. “Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?”

Production on Baz Luhrmann-directed film is scheduled to begin Monday. Warner Bros. released a statement saying that they are working closely with Australian health agencies and are taking precautions to protect those involved with their productions.

“The health and safety of our company members is always our top priority, and we are taking precautions to protect everyone who works on our productions around the world…..The health and safety of our company members is always our top priority, and we are taking precautions to protect everyone who works on our productions around the world,” Warner Bros. said.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson and we wish them a speedy recovery.
