Quarantine is often an unpleasant experience for those who undergo it. Separation from loved ones, the loss of freedom, uncertainty over disease status, and boredom can, on occasion, create dramatic effects. Suicide has been reported, substantial anger generated, and lawsuits brought following the imposition of quarantine in previous outbreaks.
The potential benefits of mandatory mass quarantine need to be weighed carefully against the possible psychological costs.
Successful use of quarantine as a public health measure requires us to reduce, as far as possible, the negative effects associated with it.
