LOS ANGELES — Industry trade group the Free Speech Coalition (FSC) has released a new update concerning the current mandatory production hold caused by a testing discrepancy, particularly relevant for talent who may have recently tested through the THL network labs.
This is the new update from the FSC:
The mandatory production hold called on Wednesday, March 17 is still in effect. We do not believe there are any active cases of syphilis or HIV in the talent community, but need to clear all talent who recently tested with THL before we can lift the hold.
There is currently only one person with an active test who has not yet been cleared. However, there are several others who tested with THL within the past month, but who are no longer active in PASS, who have not yet been cleared. Most of those are currently retesting and we expect results within the next 24-48 hours.
We hope to have the remaining people tested quickly. Of those, there are a few for whom we have left messages but have not yet heard back from.
If you tested with Talent Health Labs (THL), please read the criteria below to see if you might be one of the people we need to speak to.
- If you tested with THL in the beginning of February but have not yet tested at another PASS-certified lab
If you tested with THL in March
Please email us at email@example.com if you believe you are one of these people.
