CHAMPAIGN — Health leaders will have to wait longer to find out of people in the area have the Zika virus. We told you last week, three people in the area were showing symptoms. They got tested by the Champaign-Urbana Public Health Department.

Leaders there expected the results to come back within days. But now they have to send the samples to Atlanta. They say the CDC lab there is overwhelmed so it could take about four weeks to get those results.
