(CNN NEWSOURCE) — Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, are on the mend.

The two stars contracted the coronavirus while in Australia earlier this month. They were self-quarantined after they were released from a hospital.

On Sunday, Hanks tweeted “Two weeks after our first symptoms and we feel better.”

He also reminded people the importance of sheltering in place.

“You don’t give it to anyone, you don’t get it from anyone. Common sense, no?”

Similarly, Wilson took to Instagram Sunday to post a humorous video of her reciting the lyrics to Naughty By Nature’s “Hip Hop Hooray.” (EXPLICIT LYRICS)
