SHERMAN OAKS, Calif. — Adult Industry Medical Heathcare, the clinic that administers and records HIV tests among adult performers, has reported to XBIZ that a female performer has tested positive for HIV and her partners — a "handful," according to AIM administrator Brooke Hunter — have tested negative and are under industry quarantine for two 14-day testing periods.

"The actress was involved in a small amount of films in a short period of time," Hunter told XBIZ. "She still is in counseling."

In a statement issued earlier today, AIM said, "There has been a person who has tested positive. There were exceptionally few partners, inside and outside the industry. All partners are currently testing negative and in adult employment quarantine. All required reporting has been complied with, as have the AIM and industry protocols. The investigation is ongoing. This is not a major event."

Disclosure of private health information is regulated by the 1996 Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.

"It's private medical records," attorney Michael Fattorosi told XBIZ. "You saw this at Cedars-Sinai where stars got medical procedures done and people who worked there called TMZ and other people about it. Without a waiver, no one should be able to make this information public."

Hunter said that AIM is aware of the rumors circulating about the situation.

"We are really bothered by what we've seen on the gossip sites, all the unsupported documents," she said.
