LOS ANGELES — The Free Speech Coalition on Wednesday released an update on the current moratorium on shooting porn productions. The moratorium has been in effect since Sept. 6.

The FSC statement follows:

"The third performer to test positive for HIV does not appear to have contracted the virus while performing in adult film. Three doctors from the FSC's Performer Availability Screening Services (PASS) medical advisory board announced to FSC that all performers who worked with Performer 3 have tested negative. As with Cameron Bay and Rod Daily, all evidence points to private exposure to virus, which was identified before entering the performer pool by existing protocols.

"Despite the fact that none of the three recent cases resulted from on-set exposure, the doctors have elected to conduct additional investigative work prior to lifting the moratorium. While the third performer’s positive test is not linked to Mr. Daily or Ms. Bay in the workplace, we’re investigating to see if there was possible personal contact and if other people who perform in the industry were exposed privately.

"While we realize companies are struggling under the moratorium, our first priority must be establishing the safety of the workplace for our performers. This work will take at least until the end of the week and more likely into the first part of next week to complete. Once the physicians involved have established that no other performers were exposed, and that there is no risk of additional exposure, they will meet again and discuss the conditions and dates for lifting the moratorium.

"In the meantime, as an industry, we should give what support we can to Ms. Bay, Mr. Daily and the third affected performer. No matter how it was contracted, they are members of our community and deserve our compassion, and respect for coming forward and helping to identify anyone who might have been exposed.

"We will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available."
