Illinois’ Department of Public Health announced its first positive test of a bird for West Nile virus in the state this year.
The Blue Jay was collected south of Champaign in Arcola Township last May.
Zika virus and West Nile are both transmitted by mosquitoes.
Common symptoms of West Nile virus include fever, nausea, headache and muscle aches. Symptoms can last from a few days to a few weeks.
