LOS ANGELES (AP) — A porn industry trade group says an adult film performer who tested positive for HIV in Florida has been retested and does not have the virus.

Free Speech Coalition executive director Diane Duke said Saturday that porn productions can now resume.

As a precaution, news of the HIV positive actor shuttered porn shoots last week, halting production in the San Fernando Valley's multi-billion-dollar adult entertainment industry.

Duke says the performer will undergo follow-up testing and performers who worked with him are being tested.
