They have probably been in face-to-face contact, maybe not at that 1.5 metre distance, but that's not the only opportunity for this virus to transmit. You really decrease the risk of transmission, but if somebody is very infectious, if they're symptomatic in particular or coughing or sneezing or shouting, then the transmission is much more straightforward.
