"Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches," he began his caption 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."
The 63-year-old – who is in the country to film a movie about the life of Elvis Presley – said they'd be following the advice of medical professionals.
"Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed," Tom's statement 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?"
He added, "We'll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves!"
Australia currently has had more than 120 cases confirmed cases of coronavirus as of Thursday.
