Hello, folks. @ritawilson 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? We’ll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves! Hanx!
Eventually, the duo went for checks where they both tested positive for the Coronavirus.
Although he promised to keep the world posted with their progress, Hanks noted that he and his wife would be “tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires.”
According to People, Tom was in Australia for the pre-production of Baz Luhrmann‘s unnamed Elvis Presley biopic.
Tom holds the role of the late music legend’s icon’s longtime manager, Colonel Tom Parker. Shooting has, however, been put on hold until further notice.
