It strikes me that something missing is "even if you have the legal right to refuse a quarantine, you're going to continue going about your daily business when you could be furthering an epidemic....why?"

Understood that there are some parts of life where enforcing a quarantine would cause far more problems than it would solve.  On the flip side, you've got the idiots on Spring Break continuing to party in large groups when they can see the cruise ships coming by with new loads of infectees....guys thinking a bit like this.
