Production Moratorium Called After Positive HIV Test
CANOGA PARK, Calif. — The Free Speech Coalition called for a production moratorium today after one of the testing facilities in its PASS testing system reported a possible positive HIV test for an adult performer.
“There was a positive test at one of our testing centers. Confirmatory tests are not yet back but we are taking every precaution to protect performers and to determine if there’s been any threat to the performer pool,” FSC CEO Diane Duke said.
“We take the health of our performers very seriously and felt that it was better to err on the side of caution while we determine whether anyone else may have been exposed.”
The next steps will be to perform additional tests, determine a timeline, and identify any first generation partners, Duke said.
“We want to make sure all performers are protected. The performers’ health and safety is the most important thing,” Duke added.
FSC has called for all production to halt immediately, until further notice.
