Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson 

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have left a Queensland hospital and are now resting at a rented home in Australia five days after revealing they had both tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), PEOPLE confirms.

The pair remain under quarantine in their house, Hanks’ representative says.

The Forrest Gump star announced last Wednesday that he and his wife were diagnosed with the coronavirus while visiting Australia.

Hanks wrote at the time:

“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.”

Hanks, 63, had been on Australia’s Gold Coast for the pre-production of Baz Luhrmann‘s untitled Elvis Presley biopic, in which he plays the music icon’s longtime manager Colonel Tom Parker.

Filming for the movie has been halted following his diagnosis. Hanks is the only person on set believed to have tested positive for the the virus, according to a representative from the film in Australia. Read more.  | IMAGE: theSlidellSmiles, CC BY-ND 2.0
