Covid-19 continues to impact the film industry and the world.
Here is the statement directly from Tom Hanks himself:
“Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive.
Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?
We’ll keep the world posted and updated.
Take care of yourselves!”
We wish Tom and Rita the best and hope they both have a speedy recovery. We will update once we learn more.
How will this affect us in the film industry?
Many productions have already delayed or halted production. Prepare to work from home and wait this out. Do your best to stay healthy. We will update more as we find out
