Stopping the spread of Pink Eye

AUSTIN, MN (KTTC-TV) -- Mower County Public Health Services is reminding the public that there is still a severe case of pink eye going around the county.

With school about to start, parents and teachers need to take extra precaution.

Officials say the number of new cases of conjunctivitis has decreased slightly, but they are worried the start of the school year could bring that number up.

Officials are asking parents and teachers to make sure children are constantly washing their hands and keeping their hands away from their face.
