The Free Speech Coalition Released the following statement today:
CANOGA PARK, Calif.—A performer who tested positive for syphilis has been in touch with FSC and is meeting with FSC’s medical professionals to begin partner identification, evaluation and treatment. FSC has called a temporary moratorium on production until the risk to performers in the industry has been properly assessed and all performers have been tested.
APHSS’ doctors have met and discussed the best avenue to protect the performers and have determined that testing the entire population is the most prudent strategy. A determination will be made by the doctors on the appropriate time to lift the moratorium as more information is revealed.
FSC encourages any performer who may have tested positive for syphilis to contact FSC’s Executive Director, Diane Duke at firstname.lastname@example.org or (818) 348-9373, and FSC will make sure the performer receives immediate medical support including confidential partner identification and treatment.
FSC will provide daily updates on the situation to the industry through press releases and the APHSS blog.
