A clinic in Maxwelton, W.Va., that serves veterans in West Virginia and Virginia has closed again because of air quality issues, according to an article on the Herald Online website.

The Beckley VA Medical Center announced the indefinite closure of the Greenbrier County Community Based Outpatient Clinic in Maxwelton. Veterans served by the clinic will have to travel to the hospital in Beckley, about 53 miles west of Maxwelton.

Hospital director Karin McGraw said air quality tests found formaldehyde levels above the recommended exposure limit in several parts of the clinic. Several employees have continued to report air quality issues.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs initially closed the clinic in June 2014 after several employees became ill. The clinic later reopened but closed again in October 2014 after similar problems were reported. The VA clinic began operations in 2011.
