HAGATNA -- An outbreak of pink eye in Guam has affected hundreds on the U.S. territory.
Guam health officials say 248 people have contracted conjunctivitis -- also known as pink eye --since early May. Pacific Daily News says the outbreak continues.
Conjunctivitis is a common eye condition and can be highly contagious.
In April, public schools in the U.S. territory of American Samoa were closed for 10 days after a pink eye outbreak affected some 3,000 students and teachers. The outbreak prompted the closure of 28 schools on the territory's main island of Tutuila.
