AGENCIES, Los Angeles: Forrest Gump actor Tom Hanks and his multi-talented wife Rita Wilson have finally returned to their home in Los Angeles after spending two weeks in Australia in quarantine.
The couple had contracted coronavirus there while doing some pre-production work for a film on rock n’ roll legend Elvis Presley, where Hanks plays his manager.
“Hey, Folks… We’re home now and, like the rest of America, we carry on with sheltering in place and social distancing. Many, many thanks to everyone in Australia who looked after us. Their care and guidance made possible our return to the USA. And many thanks to all of you who reached out with well wishes. Rita and I so appreciate it. Hanx,” read the statement issued by the couple on Hanks’ Twitter account.

During their quarantine, the couple had kept their fans updated about their conditions which had improved considerably according to a post that Hanks shared a week back. He tweeted, “Hey, folks. Two weeks after our first symptoms and we feel better. 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 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. Hanx”.
