FSC Calls for 'Voluntary Shutdown' of Adult Production Until End of March Due to COVID-19

LOS ANGELES — Adult industry trade group the Free Speech Coalition (FSC) has updated their coronavirus advisory tonight, calling for "a voluntary shutdown of all adult entertainment productions in the United States and Canada through Tuesday, March 31."

This is the text of the FSC COVID-19 update:

FSC is calling for a voluntary shutdown of all adult entertainment productions in the United States and Canada through Tuesday, March 31.

In accordance with the recent order from the Governor of the State of California to close all “non-essential businesses,” and similar orders from other government officials throughout the United States and Canada, we ask that producers cancel all shoots through March 31, and recommend that performers immediately stop filming with partners who are not a part of their household. We do not take this step lightly.

We ask that all members of the adult industry stay home as much as possible, leaving the house only for necessities. We all must do our part to flatten the growth curve of this global pandemic.

PASS will remain online. While we are calling for an immediate halt to production, we do not want to compound the situation by removing a critical tool for safeguarding the health of our community. We will not penalize talent who send their test results to PASS, nor will we penalize anyone who logs in to PASS to check test results. 

We strongly encourage everyone to follow all recommendations from local public health agencies and the CDC regarding coronavirus prevention. Do not take chances with your health or the health of others.

Alert us immediately at pass@freespeechcoalition.com if you or someone you have had contact with tests positive for the coronavirus. Your information can be kept private.

For additional information, contact your local public health officials.

For additional details, follow FSC online and on Twitter.
