Talent Testing Service Issues Coronavirus Advisory

Talent Testing Service Issues Coronavirus Advisory

LOS ANGELES — Talent Testing Services (TTS) has issued a coronavirus advisory listing a variety of preventative measures and other guidelines to assist adult industry talent during the current outbreak.

Their statement follows:

TTS has been at the forefront in providing best-in-class testing services since 2005 in order to achieve one primary mission — the safety of the adult performers. We have been monitoring the constantly evolving global events surrounding the coronavirus 19 (COVID-19). We are basing our recommendations by following the guidance documents of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) information and adhering to CDC guidance.

How is the Virus Spread?

According to the CDC, the virus is mainly spread person-to-person, particularly when they are within six (6) feet of each other. The primary way is when an infected person sneezes or coughs and their droplets land on a nearby person’s mouth or nose or are inhaled into their lungs.

Another way is when a person touches a surface where the virus is, then touches his or her own mouth, nose or eyes.

What are the Symptoms?

Patients typically have mild to severe respiratory symptoms, such as a cough and difficulty breathing, as well as a fever.

As with other viruses, people who are elderly and/or have underlying health conditions are more at risk.

What is the Risk for Contracting COVID-19?

In the United States, there were about 260 cases and 14 deaths as of March 6. Thirteen (13) of these were in the state of Washington. Since mid-December there have been 102,000 cases reported worldwide with about 80 percent of those cases reported in China.

Most of the people who contract COVID-19 recover in a matter of days, oftentimes at home, according to health officials. Symptoms can be more serious for the elderly and people with underlying health conditions. The overall death rate is about 3 percent.

TTS Preventive Measures, Recommendations & Outlook

  • Effective Monday, March 16, we will provide hand sanitizing pens to all talent that visit our Miami, Northridge, Las Vegas and Oakland facilities. Please note that these are in limited supply.
  • We strongly recommend that all talent pre-register their visit to TTS Miami, Northridge, Las Vegas and Oakland locations online via our website. This will speed up your visit at the facility and minimize exposure, if any.
  • Talent that have recently traveled to countries with restrictions such as China, Hong Kong, Japan, Iran, Korea, Macau, Singapore and the E.U. agree to not engage in personal contact with other talents for at least 14 days while monitoring for symptoms from home to limit the potential spread of the virus. Please click here for an updated list of countries with restrictions.
  • If you feel sick with the symptoms mentioned above or any others, do not shoot and stay home.
  • If you develop symptoms during the 14-day window such as fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, please:
    • Contact your agent and/or producer immediately to cancel any shoots you have scheduled.
    • Seek medical care right away. Before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room, call ahead and tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms.
    • Avoid contact with others.
    • Do not travel while sick. Some travel areas have implemented quarantines of those found with symptoms of illness.
    • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
    • Clean your hands frequently with alcohol sanitizer or soap with water if soiled.
