In the aftermath of a suicide, trauma, or crime, the last thing on many people’s minds is bloodborne viruses. However, in addition to hiring bio clean and crime scene cleanup services, it’s important to get tested for HIV after coming in contact with another person’s blood during an incident. If you were recently exposed to blood at a crime scene in Orlando, then watch this video to learn about the importance of getting tested for HIV.
Regardless of age, gender, or lifestyle, anyone can be infected with HIV.

Because HIV cannot be diagnosed through symptoms, it’s important to get tested.
