Actor Tom Hanks says he and his wife, actress Rita Wilson, have been diagnosed with coronavirus. 

In a statement posted to Instagram, Hanks said the two were traveling in Australia when they were tested. 

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

Mr. Hanks is playing the role of Colonel Tom Parker, Presley’s eccentric manager, who groomed the famous singer to stardom in the 1950s. Production on the film, which is being directed by Baz Luhrmann, is set to begin on Monday.

“The health and safety of our company members is always our top priority, and we are taking precautions to protect everyone who works on our productions around the world,” Warner Bros., the studio behind the film, said in a statement.

Australia has had more than 120 cases confirmed cases of coronavirus.
