The 63-year-old actor said on Twitter on Saturday that he and Wilson would want to quarantine. His tweet reads, "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."

Hanks shared a statement on how the couple was feeling, several days before the couple return to Los Angeles. Hanks issued a joint statement on Twitter and wrote,

"Hey, folks. Two weeks after our first symptoms and we feel better," The couple then urged their fans and followers to stay home and self isolate.
