In a post from his Twitter account, Hanks wrote: “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. Ruth and I so appreciate it. Hanx.”

Hanks and Wilson were seen in photos published yesterday (Saturday 28 March) disembarking from their plane in LA.

They were among a number of celebrities to have contracted coronavirus. Others who have tested positive include Idris Elba and his wife, Sabrina Dhowre, Frozen 2 star Rachel Matthews, and singer Charlotte Lawrence. 

A number of public figures have been raising awareness of the latest advice from medical professionals. 

Kate Winslet and Matt Damon, who starred in the 2011 pandemic thriller Contagion, appeared in a series of public service announcement videos calling on people to wash their hands and practise social distancing.
