The idea is that the puppy hasn't been fully vaccinated and immune to common dog diseases. However good exercise is important to good health, and exposure to different stimuli is important for good mental health.

In the end I think it is better to let the little guy get out in the world and get exposure, but do it smart. Avoid areas where other dogs of unknown health are or were. This means no doggie parks, and steering your dog away from random dog poo on your walks around the block. If you have friends with dogs and these dogs have all their shots, dewormed, etc then your pup can be fine playing with them.

Also, put the whole thing in perspective. Us humans have had dog companions for tens of thousands of years, and only recently have we been imposing this 15 week isolation policy.
