Another tough week for porn: a second performer turns up positive #HIV #AIDS

Cue the AHF’s “I told you so” in 3, 2, 1..

It’s another tough week for the porn business due to a second performer turning up positive:

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.

To be clear: this performer didn’t work since before the last moratorium, and there’s no indication that this conversion is a result of an on-test transmission. That won’t stop the AHF from spinning all of this to their advantage I’m sure.
