MAXWELTON, W.Va. (AP) - A Veterans Affairs outpatient clinic closed because of air concerns is expected to reopen next month.

The Greenbrier County Community Based Outpatient Clinic in Maxwelton was closed June 6 after several employees became ill.

Beckley Veterans Affairs Medical Center spokeswoman Debbie Voloski tells The Register-Herald (https://bit.ly/1jObpQo ) that the clinic is tentatively scheduled to reopen Aug. 1.

She says the reopening date is contingent upon results of third-party air quality testing commissioned by the VA.

The clinic serves veterans in Greenbrier, Monroe, Pocahontas and Summers counties in West Virginia and Alleghany County, Virginia.

Voloski says patients have been receiving care at the Beckley hospital. The clinic’s employees were temporarily assigned to the hospital.
