In brief: Very Contagious

Usually sharing is a good thing.
Sharing germs -- not so much. Pink eye is very contagious. Ways to avoid sharing pink eye germs: [try to avoid] touching your eye. Wash hands frequently. Don't share towels. Throw away facial tissues after you're done. Cover your mouth and nose when you're coughing/sneezing. Discard your antibiotic drops bottle when you're done. Good luck!
