Tom Hanks wants us to know that he & Rita Wilson are fine in their corona-isolation

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are obviously still in isolation in Gold Coast, Australia. They tested positive for the coronavirus this week, and Aussie health officials are monitoring them in their corona-isolation. Tom posted the above Instagram late last night (it would have mid-morning in Oz?) with this message:

Hello folks. @ritawilson and I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us. We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one-day-at-a-time. There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no? Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball. Hanx

They look okay? They look tired but fine. I hope they’re okay! Rita was the one experiencing the flu-like conditions, and she’s the one who has been tweeting through the isolation too:

    I love her so much in now and then. And there’s no crying in baseball?! Tom Hanks is everything lol. They’re such a wonderful pair!

    • Snazzy says:

      I think that was from “A league of their own”.
      When I read that line I actually heard it in his voice!

      • Suze says:

        Yes, Tom Hanks’ reference is from A League of their Own, but Rita Wilson acted in Now & Then as the grown-up version of Chrissy.

  2. Jerusha says:

    Fingers crossed that Tom and Rita come out of this with no serious effects. Their no drama approach is great.

    • Malin says:

      It takes about 2-3 weeks, then they will get better or, instead of getting better, the illness gets worse and aspirational problems are worsening.

      Please, don’t go to the doctors office or ER to get tested if you have flulike symptoms – that way the virus spreads rapidly to others who are already I’ll. Get help when you really need it, stay in carantine until then.

    Wishing them best! May God bless them.

    Why don’t they write more about how they feel or the symptoms. That’s what everyone is interested in…

    • Eliza_ says:

      They said she/ they had aches, cold symptoms and mild fever. With all the hysteria people forget those not “at-risk” will just have cold symptoms for a few days and then just stay in isolation for longer than they felt sick.

      • lucy2 says:

        So far, it sounds like their symptoms are pretty mild. Hopefully they don’t progress more. I’m grateful to them for sharing their story, and doing their best to stay upbeat.

    • Starkille says:

      Because the specifics of their bodily fluids and internal organs are, frankly, none of your business?

  5. Nina Simone says:

    I’m worried for them! They are in their 60s and therefore high risk. Rita also is a cancer survivor. Oh gosh…

    • als says:

      I don’t think the 60s are considered high risk. More like higher risk than the 20s, which is to be said for everything.
      I am really keeping my fingers crossed. They are healthy, vivacious, all should be well.

    There’s already a pretty awesome Covid-19 playlist on Spotify lol.
