While Rita Wilson and her husband Tom Hanks are still in quarantine in Australia they have to learn about what to do in it. They are feeling much better but they still don't want to risk giving it to anyone or catching it again. No one wants another visit to the hospital right now.

Not that they either star was terribly sick. They both just didn't feel good. Turns out they had it. Which they were the first we knew of catching it celebrity wise.

"Hi guys, it's me, and I just wanted to tell you something," Wilson said in a video she posted to Instagram. "I am gonna give you my phone number and you can text me and I'm gonna text you back. That way I can let you know what I'm up to and where I'm gonna be and maybe tell you some things that are happening before they happen."

She wants to connect to her fans in a way many haven't yet. Texting.

Rita Wilson is wanting to make sure her fans have a voice and that they know they are able to speak freely.

"Feel free to text me to my cell phone number, it is me, I will get it to you and I will get back to you in due time, 'cause I'm gonna be probably spending a lot of time on text," she said. "Anyways, the number to text me at is (310) 299-9260. (310) 299-9260. Text you soon! Bye!"

It may not be wise to give out a personal number but Rita does have time to fill.

"Going stir crazy? Have a suggestion for my Quarantunes playlist? TEXT ME! (310) 299-9260 - I'm giving you my phone number!!" Wilson put in the caption on Instagram "And YES... It's actually me. Text me so I can let you know what I'm up to, when I'm in your city (once we can leave our houses), and so we can stay in touch. I mean, not ACTUALLY touch. Social distancing works!"

She is behind the fun Spotify list labeled "Quarantunes." It is filled with many things that are just really catchy. Why not right?

Tom and Rita have taken to their social media accounts to give a story about how they really felt. The media is full of the scary hospital stays and death. They wanted their fans to feel like there was something more than that. Hanks actually tweeted to his fans about why staying home was important. He didn't want people to keep feeling panicked when it can be prevented.

"Hey, folks. Two weeks after our first symptoms and we feel better," he tweeted before telling his fans why keeping distance is important. "Sheltering in place works like this: You don't give it to anyone -You don't get it from anyone. Common sense, no? Going to take awhile, but if we take care of each other, help where we can, and give up some comforts...this, too, shall pass. We can figure this out. Hanx."
