“So quick update on my folks, they’re out of the hospital,” Chet Hanks said on Instagram Monday. “They’re still self-quarantined, obviously, but they’re feeling a lot better.”

The “Forrest Gump” actor told fans on Twitter and Instagram Wednesday that he and Wilson sought medical care after they came down with symptoms resembling a cold, as well as body aches and slight fevers. They were in Australia while Hanks was filming a movie.

“To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive,” he wrote.

The couple have since posted reassuring updates on social media to fans.
