Wilson, 63, who tested positive for coronavirus in Australia with her husband Tom Hanks, took to Instagram on Monday, asking fans to text her.

She posted her number - (310) 299-9260 - confirming, 'It's actually me,' while asking fans to stay in touch with her.  

'Going stir crazy? Have a suggestion for my Quarantunes playlist? TEXT ME! (310) 299-9260,' Wilson began.

'I'm giving you my phone number!! 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,' she added.

'I mean, not ACTUALLY touch. Social distancing works!' she concluded.

She also posted a video to her 965,000 Instagram followers, where she began, 'Hi guys, it's me and I just wanted to tell you something. I am going to give you my phone number.'

'You can text me, and I'm gonna text you back,' Wilson added. '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 will happen before they happen.'

'So 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 added her cell phone number, (310) 299-9260, before waving to her fans and ending on, 'Text you soon. Bye!'

Wilson was in Australia with her husband Tom Hanks, who was shooting an Elvis Presley biopic (with Hanks playing Colonel Tom Parker), when they announced they tested positive for COVID-19.

They were both admitted to the Gold Coast University Hospital, and ultimately released.

Wilson has a new movie entitled Love is Love is Love that was scheduled for release in April, though that seems unlikely due to theaters across the country shutting down due to the coronavirus outbreak.

She stars alongside Chris Messina, Joanne Whalley and Rosanna Arquette, for writer-director Eleanor Coppola.

The film is a woven tale of three stories that explore love, commitment, and loyalty between couples and friends.
