Hanks and Wilson have been married since 1988.

The announcement followed President Donald Trump’s Oval Office address to the nation regarding his administration’s response to the spread of the deadly illness nationwide. The president announced that the United States will bar travel from European countries for 30 days beginning at midnight on Friday in an effort to prevent additional coronavirus cases from the continent.  
“After consulting with our top government health professionals, I have decided to take several strong but necessary actions to protect the health and wellbeing of all Americans,” he stated. “These prohibitions will not only apply to the tremendous amount of trade and cargo but various other things as we get approval. Anything coming from Europe to the United States is what we are discussing.”

The briefing came after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced 31 Americans have died from the COVID-19 outbreak and more than 1,000 have been sickened.

Trump warned that the highest risk remains among the elderly population with underlying health conditions and strongly advised nursing homes for the elderly to suspend all medically unnecessary visits and encouraged older people to avoid unnecessary travel.

“Smart action today will prevent the spread of the virus tomorrow,” Trump said.
