I assume you know that Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson were the first documented celeb cases of Covid19. And that all the world stopped and held it’s breath, right? No joking here. I was concerned. But good news is coming in.

Hanks used the update, which he shared on Twitter, to remind his followers of the importance of sheltering in place to help stem the pandemic.
“Sheltering in place works like this: You don’t give it to anyone – You don’t get it from anyone. Common sense, no?” Hanks wrote.
He added: “Going to take a while, 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.”
Hanks and Wilson, both 63, were in Australia for the pre-production of Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley film when they tested positive for the virus.
They were briefly hospitalized before being released into isolation at an undisclosed Australian residence.
