Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are 'Feeling Better'

Tom Hanks took to social media on Sunday night to share an update on his condition after he and his wife, Rita Wilson, tested positive for coronavirus. Hanks shared that he and Wilson are feeling better and he reminds his fans to stay inside.

In the tweet Hanks said, "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 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. Hanx"
