She went in for a second test Tuesday with a new blood sample. Preliminary results came back Wednesday as potentially positive for HIV.
Bay's last test prior to Monday -- which was negative -- took place July 27, he said, and she had done shoots since.
"Cameron is obviously distraught over this conclusive information provided to her today, and yet she has been 100% cooperative with the medical personnel, strictly in the interest of ensuring the fastest possible partner notification for the benefit of all concerned," he said in a statement. "Cameron has been a model citizen acting responsibly at this most difficult time. Her courage should be lauded."
Bay added in a statement of her own: "As difficult as this news is for me today, I am hopeful that no other performers have been affected. I plan on doing everything possible to assist the medical professionals and my fellow performers. Following that, my long-term plan is to take care of myself and my health."
Free Speech Coalition, a Canoga Park-based trade organization for the adult film industry, said Thursday separate tests by Cutting Edge Testing and Talent Testing Services confirmed Bay is positive for HIV.
The coalition announced a nationwide moratorium on adult shooting Wednesday after preliminary test results were positive.
According to a statement released Thursday, the moratorium will remain in effect until Bay's sexual partners have been tested and cleared. Identification and notification of those people are nearly complete, the organization said.
Officials with the county's department of public health confirmed that the agency had been notified of the test result, as required by law.
The most recent STD-related industry moratorium was issued in August 2012 as a result of a syphilis outbreak.
The coalition said there was "no evidence whatsoever" that Bay had contracted the infection on set, but critics of the industry pointed to the latest HIV scare as further evidence that condoms should be required during filming.
Last week, a U.S. district judge struck down the contention that the law is unconstitutional. Vivid Entertainment quickly said it will appeal.
A spokesman with the county public health department said it has issued 10 conditional adult film permits since the condom measure was implemented, and no violations had been found to date.
