“The second generation exposures are said to be way high,” South wrote. “The guy is said to have worked for ALL the major studios.”

“Until we know for sure, we’ve asked the industry to have a moratorium on production,” the Executive Director of the Free Speech Coalition Diane Duke said about the situation.  She said the group will notify performers who have had sexual contact with the potentially infected person so they can get tested.
