If you’ve got to self-isolate or quarantine, be like Rebecca Frasure: “It prevented the spread. It was no fun, for sure, but you know, you gotta do what you gotta do.”

Meanwhile, around the country, cities might be scrambling to find ways to house quarantined patients; recreational vehicles and old motels already have been repurposed.
