It now stipulates that anyone who has been within 6 feet of an infected person 'for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period,' should quarantine. And it's cumulative exposure that matters — not continuous time. So spending five minutes each with three infected persons produces a fifteen-minute exposure.
