Actor Tom Hanks and his actress/country singer wife Rita Wilson are currently in self-quarantine at their home in Queensland, Australia after spending several days in the hospital after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

On March 11, the actor revealed to his 8.3 million Instagram followers that he and Wilson had tested positive for COVID-19.

They’ve since been released from the hospital to quarantine at home, where they have been passing the time by playing Gin Rummy and eating Vegemite toast.

Hanks also announced that the couple of over 30 years is fever free.

“No fever but the blahs,” he said.

Simple tasks such as folding laundry or doing the dishes tire them out so much, they nap afterwards.

Hanks’ sister was contacted by a few news outlets and she gave an update on her brother and sister-in-law.

“I have communicated with my brother. He’s not great, but still OK,” Sandra Hanks Benoiton told the Daily Mail on March 18. “[Am I] shocked? No. He’s an actor, not a god, [but] medical care in Australia is good.”
