Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson shared some personal health news with fans on Wednesday night. While travelling in Australia, the couple tested posted for coronavirus (COVID-19) after experiencing notable symptoms. They are both 63 years old.

"Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches," Tom 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 the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive."

"Well, now. What to do next?" he continued. "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!"
