Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson‘s son Chet Hanks, posted a video to Instagram to put the public at ease after his parents announced that they were in quarantine on Wednesday in Australia after testing positive for COVID-19.

“They both are fine, they’re not even that sick,” he said with a slight country accent. He appeared shirtless in the video, showing off his full body tattoos.
