LOS ANGELES — The Free Speech Coalition lifted the production moratorium Saturday, confirming the HIV test result in question was a "false positive."
FSC said in a press release, "Confirmatory results from yesterday’s possible positive test for HIV by an adult performer have come back negative indicating a false positive. Production can resume immediately.
"It’s important to remember that production holds are part of a functioning safety system. So long as performers have private lives, we can never eliminate their risk of contracting HIV. However, we can make sure that should a performer contract HIV, that we stop it before it is transmitted to other performers.
"We understand that production holds are difficult, but they are necessary for the system to work. In the meantime, we thank everyone for observing the production hold."
