In brief: Prevent spread
Now that you know how it is spread, work to prevent spreading to those around you.
Wash your hands a lot! don't shake hands, share pens, towels or pillows. Wash your hands again! the best thing you can do is not give this to your family friends and coworkers.

In brief: Infectious pinkeye
Most pink eye is due to virus and requires direct contact such as fingers to a doorknob, etc.
It is not spread through the air like the common cold. It also requires a susceptible individual.
