"Hey, folks. Two weeks after our first symptoms and we (Rita Wilson) feel better," Hanks wrote.
The actor also staunchly advocated for the "common sense" practice of self-isolation and social distancing when it comes to combating the global spread of COVID-19 -- specifically in regards to the multiple "shelter in place" orders that have been enacted in cities across the world.
"Sheltering in place works like this: You don’t give it to anyone - You don’t get it from anyone. Common sense, no?" Hanks wrote.
"Going to take awhile, but if we take care of each other, help where we can, and give up some comforts...this, too, shall pass," he added. "We can figure this out. Hanx."
"Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches," Hanks shared. "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," 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? We’ll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves!"
