Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson “Feel Better” two weeks after first being diagnosed with the coronavirus, the actor said on Sunday night.
In his update, Hanks reminded folks of the importance of sheltering in place in order to halt the virus.
Hanks said, “Sheltering in place works like this: You don’t give it to anyone – You don’t get it from anyone. Common sense, no?”
He continued, “Going to take a while, but if we take care of each other, help where we can, and give up some comforts…this, too, shall pass. We can figure this out.”
Hanks and Wilson, both 63, were in Australia for pre-production of Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley film when they both were diagnosed with the virus.
After a short hospitalization, the two were released into isolation in an undisclosed location in Australia.
