If you spent half your days scouting social media profiles of celebrities looking for inspiration and trends to follow… well you’ll be disappointed.

The only trend that seems to be keeping the celebs and everyone else busy is COVID-19 and how to prevent catching it. So masks are trending– bejewelled ones, N95 and even regular hospital masks.

Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson are the first big names in the world of movies to have caught the contagious flu. Hanks posted about it while shooting in Australia commenting, “Hello folks. @ritawilsonand I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us. We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one-day-at-a-time. There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no? Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball. Hanx”
