Correspondence from Dr. W. Kenneth Riland, Chief Physician, consists of a single letter written to All Employees of the United States Steel Corporation in New York. On October 31, 1957, Dr. Riland's memo, entitled "Asiatic Influenza and Upper Respiratory Infections," details that there has been an increase in upper respiratory tract infections, but that many are not Asian type influenza. He offers precautions including adequate rest, a balanced diet, avoiding crowds, and adequate protection against temperature and weather conditions. He also advises what to do if one were to become sick and asks that absences from illness be reported to the Medical Department. A scanned copy of the letter is available under Attachments.
