LOS ANGELES â€” Free Speech Coalition issued a statement late Wednesday night regarding an adult performer testing positive for HIV this week, noting there is “no indication of on-set transmission.”
â€œFSC is working hand-in-hand with theÂ APHSSÂ (Adult Production Health & Safety Services)-affiliated doctor to contact and treat performers for any possible exposure involving the primary patient,â€ said FSC CEO Diane Duke.
â€œThere is no indication of on-set transmission. Because of the rigorous APHSS protocols, the situation was accessed quickly and – most importantly – action was taken to ensure the protocols were followed. APHSS protocols for performer testing go well beyond what is typical for STI testing in the general population; our standards have been developed by industry stakeholders and medical experts, to provide an unprecedented system to uphold industry self-regulation and protect the welfare of our performers.”
The statement continued, “Additional confirmatory tests are being conducted for the performer in question. The production moratorium will continue until further notice. APHSS will update the story, as soon as any new information becomes available.”
