Is it ok for guinea pigs to be out if there's a short shower?

Today while Eddie and Elvis were out in the run there was a very brief shower (5 mins or so). I didn't know whether I should bring them in since before I could get everything set back up in their cage (I took all the hideys out to put in the run) it had stopped. I left them out in the run as there's a run cover so half the grass stayed dry and the sun came back out but I'm worried about whether there's still a risk of UTI. I would never put them out if it had rained properly or was raining but if a short shower like this happened again would it be ok to leave them out?
Thanks 🙂

For a short and light shower, if they are already out, then I leave them out (their run roof is fully covered). If it doesn’t stop quickly or gets heavier then I get them in.
