Negligible risk - suits are inspected going into, then out of BSL4. He would have had the only exposure & that would have been nothing more than perhaps a slight risk of having inhaled some virions.

If he's smart, he took the vaccine & other than that, he's got 3 weeks of isolation to deal with... don't know if he's serving that at home, (depends if he lives alone, I would think) or stuck pacing the limited space in an isolation room.
