Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson's Coronavirus Quarantine Is Officially Over
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are back in the United States and looking happy and healthy.
The famous couple were spotted in Los Angeles Friday when they arrived back in the States after being quarantined in Australia when they tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this month. In photographs that are making the rounds online (you can see them here), Hanks and Wilson are seen smiling in their SUV, which Hanks was driving.
It’s been roughly two and a half weeks since Hanks announced that he and his wife had tested positive for the virus and were going into quarantine in Australia, where he was filming a movie at the time.
“We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive,” the actor wrote in a March 11 post. “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?”

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
On March 22, 11 days after news of their diagnosis broke, Hanks reported that he and Wilson were feeling better. The actor also encouraged fans to self-isolate and practice social distancing to slow the spread of the virus.
“Hey, folks. Two weeks after our first symptoms and we (Rita Wilson) feel better,” Hanks wrote on Facebook. “Sheltering in place works like this: You don’t give it to anyone. You don’t get it from anyone. Common sense, no? Going to take awhile, but if we take care of each other, help where we can, and give up some comforts…this, too, shall pass. We can figure this out.”
As usual, Tom Hanks has absolutely nailed it.
