The actress took to Twitter Thursday to ask for song and title recommendations for a Spotify playlist.
"Something that might relate to isolation, perhaps?" she continued. "This is what one does in quarantine. Uthink of stuff like this."
Wilson soon shared the resulting playlist, titled "Quarantunes," with her fans. It includes songs like Eric Carmen's "All by Myself," Queen's "I Want to Break Free" and Billy Idol's "Dancing with Myself."
Hanks, 63, has said he and Wilson, 63, are taking their medically supervised isolation "one-day-at-a-time" following their diagnosis.
In an upbeat Instagram post Thursday, a day following the diagnosis reveal, the legendary actor managed a smile with his arm around the grinning, baseball-cap wearing Wilson.
Hanks thanked the Queensland hospital medical staff for taking "such good care of us" and made clear the isolation was necessary "so we do not spread it to anyone else."
"There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness," wrote Hanks. "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?"
Hanks signed off with a version of his classic line from "A League of Their Own."
"Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball," wrote Hanks.

Hello folks. @ritawilson and 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

Wilson also gave a light-hearted update on their situation.
"From here on out, the only Corona I want is from Mexico and you drink it," she joked in a tweet on Friday.
"We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches," Hanks wrote. "Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive."
Hanks' representative Francesca Ciuffo confirmed the diagnosis to USA TODAY.
Australian officials said the couple were being treated at a Queensland hospital. “We wish them a very speedy recovery,” state Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk told reporters.
The Oscar-winning actor has been in Australia for pre-production on Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Presley film, in which he'll play Presley's manager Colonel Tom Parker. Production has been halted.
Hanks said he will be "tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires."
Warner Bros. said in a statement provided to USA TODAY by spokesman Paul McGuire that the studio is working closely with Australian health agencies to identify anyone who has come in contact with the affected cast member. The statement did not name Hanks specifically.
"The health and safety of our company members is always our top priority, and we are taking precautions to protect everyone who works on our productions around the world," the statement said.
Colin Hanks, 42, the son of Hanks and the late Samantha Lewes, thanked fans for the "outpouring of support."
"My parents are receiving excellent care in Australia (and in good spirits) given the circumstances," he wrote. "Despite the fact that I'm in LA haven't seen them in over three weeks, we have been in constant contact and am confident that they will make a full recovery."

The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires.

The couple's son Chet Hanks, 29, weighed in on his Instagram shortly after the announcement, saying "it's true, my parents got coronavirus, crazy ... But I just got off the phone with them.

He added, "I appreciate everyone's concern...I think it's all going to be alright."
