The two are in Australia. Hanks said they were feeling ill, and were tested for the virus. Results came back positive.

"Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed," Hanks wrote. "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?"

Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has been designated a pandemic by the World Health Organization.
