(nbcnews) – Actor Tom Hanks has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
Hanks, 63, said in an Instagram post on Wednesday that while in Australia, he and wife Rita Wilson came down with symptoms resembling a cold, as well as body aches and slight fevers.
“To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive,” Hanks wrote.
Hanks wrote that they “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?” Hanks wrote.
Hanks ended the post by saying “We’ll keep the world posted and updated” and the message “Take care of yourselves!”
