CANOGA PARK, Calif. — The Free Speech Coalition/PASS was informed by one of its doctors that another performer has tested positive for HIV.

As a result of this news, FSC is calling a moratorium on all production until further notice.

UPDATE —The FSC issued the following update relative to today's announcement:

Today, FSC/PASS was informed by one of the doctors affiliated with one of the PASS provider testing facilities that another performer has tested positive for HIV. As a result of this news, FSC is calling a moratorium on all production until further notice.

The criteria for the moratorium are established by the doctors on the medical advisory council which includes Dr. Sean Darcy and Dr. Peter Miao. The doctors are working in concert to do the research and create an accurate first and second generational genealogy. They are also ensuring that the performer receives referrals, medical counsel and top-quality care. 

While we don't have evidence to suggest an on set transmission as opposed to a transmission from non-industry (off-camera) related activity, we are taking every measure to determine the source and to protect the performer pool. The cost of retests required for generational partners will be covered by FSC/PASS.

It should be noted that the last moratorium was lifted contingent on mandatory retesting after August 19th which exceeded the window period recommended by the PASS medical advisory council.

Dr. Darcy stated, "Because of these precautionary steps, the performer who has now tested positive for HIV, had not performed since BEFORE the first moratorium and was prevented from performing due to the required retest. Therefore, no performers were exposed to a new risk of on-set transmission as a result of this latest case, or Ms. Bay's infection."

PASS will supply regular updates on the PASS website at FSCPASS.org. Please check the website for daily updates.

Today's announcement follows a tough summer for the filmmaking community in Porn Valley. After syphilis and hepatitis C scares, HIV became the top news of the day.

On Aug. 22, porn actress Cameron Bay announced via the FSC that she had been infected with HIV.

After Bay tested positive, production was shut down for about a week through a FSC moratorium.

Later, Rod Daily announced via social media that he has contracted HIV, making him the second adult film actor to announce a diagnosis with the disease in recent weeks.

Daily made his HIV status public via Twitter, declaring: "Drumroll please!! I'm 32 years old and I'm HIV positive. Acute HIV, which means I recently was infected. For that I am blessed."
