I'm sort of in the same position as your young un at the minute, as I've been in contact with someone with it at school.
I have to isolate, but the rest of the fam are fine to do whatever it is that these people do.
Like you say, it is a bit odd- if I've been exposed, they've been exposed to me, so they're at risk.
I had it explained to me like cordial- your positive person is undiluted risk, if you're in contact with them then you're a diluted risk, if someone is in contact with you, then they're even further diluted. I guess the nuts and bolts are, if one had to isolate because of being in contact with someone who'd been in contact with someone who'd tested positive, then the lines of association would keep going, and everyone would end up isolating, and we may as well be in full lockdown.
