 Repairs are underway to address air quality concerns at a Veterans Affairs outpatient clinic in southeastern West Virginia.

Employees at the Greenbrier County Community Based Outpatient Clinic in Maxwelton have complained of headaches, dizziness and a burning sensation in their eyes since last June. The clinic has been closed for much of the past eight months.

The clinic is located in a building owned by the Greenbrier Valley Economic Development Corporation. Steve Weir, the corporation’s executive director, tells The Register-Herald that the repairs could be completed next week.

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