(HOI) -- The Illinois Department of Public Health is announcing and responding to a test processing delay involving tests conducted at certain state-run sites -- including Peoria and Bloomington.

A release from IDPH said processing of up to 3,800 tests conducted at state community-based or mobile testing sites for COVID-19 testing between July 12-24, 2020 have been delayed beyond the appropriate laboratory testing and reporting window.

The department said the vast majority of the more than 450,000 tests done at these state sites and sites across Illinois during the July 12-24 time period have already received their results and they recommend individuals who have not yet received their results visit a free state-run testing location to have another specimen collected. 

IDPH said they're working closely with Reditus Labs to improve their interface with specimen collection at state-run sites and ensure the processing of specimens moves forward in a timely manner. Specimens collected after July 24, 2020 are being processed and individuals will be promptly notified of their results.

Other sites around the state that saw delays are Aurora, East St. Louis, Rockford, Rolling Meadows, and South Holland.
