Default Foam stopper when refrigerating a starter?

I currently have my starter on a stir plate with a foam stopper from NB and would like to chill it in the fridge to decant.

Should I change the foam stopper to an airlock to prevent any type of contamination from the fridge or just leave it with the foam stopper?

I'd use foil but it shouldn't matter much.
