LOS ANGELES (AP) - A San Fernando Valley health clinic that
serves the adult film industry says an actress has tested positive
The Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation said Wednesday
that initial HIV tests of the woman's partners have come up
negative, but they are not being allowed to perform and are being
encouraged to test again in two weeks.
The case is the first publicly confirmed HIV infection in the industry in Southern California since 2004 when an HIV outbreak
shut down porn production for a month.
County Public Health Director Dr. Jonathan Fielding says his office received no reports about the incident by Wednesday
afternoon but would launch an investigation.
