Tom Hanks and his wife have been diagnosed with COVID-19.

They are being treated at Gold Coast Hospital.

The couple are on the Gold Coast for the production of Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley movie, in which Hanks is playing Presley’s iconic manager Colonel Tom Parker.

Hanks and his wife, both 63, revealed the news in a statement, saying “Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia. 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.”

”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 require. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?”
