So I just noticed that my son (while I was in the bathroom), ran between the rooms and pet all three pigs, including the one I have in quarantine.

Come to find out, he has also been moving toys between the cages, including fleece or fleece-covered grid tunnels, and my hubby has been taking them out as soon as he notices.

Should I just continue to keep an eye on all the pigs now, and treat my other two for mites as a preventative? Does all this completely defeat the quarantine?

[The reason I know he is doing it... he has started pretending to wheek -- i.e., squealing -- when he pets the pigs, and I had left the bathroom door open and saw him whiz past. No pun intended.]

Yes, you should treat them all for mites now and keep an eye on the existing pigs.

Germs and parasite eggs can spread on your hands and shirt.
