Chicken pox - can DS1 who is immune spread it?

Hi

I think I know the answer to this but just checking:

DS2 has chicken pox. DS1 is immune through previous infection. Am I ok to take DS1 out to soft play etc when opportunity arises? With it being half term I don't want to quarantine DS1 if not necessary.

Anyone?

Assuming it is ok to take DC1 out without risk to the public but wouldn't want to infect. He's climbing the walls to go out!

I would think it unlikely that he could pass it on if he didn't have an active case at the time so I would take him out and about while leaving your DS2 at home
