A couple in Kentucky was placed on house arrest and forced to wear ankle monitors when the wife refused to sign self-quarantine papers after she tested positive for the coronavirus. Her name is Elizabeth Linscott and she said she was tested ahead of a planned trip to visit her parents. Despite having no symptoms, she tested positive.

She was told to sign documentation that she would agree to self-quarantine in hopes to refrain from spreading it. However, the documents, according to Linscott, suggested that she would call the Hardin County Health Department anytime she would leave the house. She claims she did not refuse to self-quarantine, but that she also would not sign any documents that were worded the way she suggested.

Fox 5 quotes Linscott as saying, "my part was if I have to go to the ER, if I have to go to the hospital, I’m not going to wait to get the approval to go."

"After opting not to sign the health department papers, Linscott said she received a text message informing her that the situation would be escalated and law enforcement would be involved, KABC-TV reported. Her husband, Isaiah, said he was greeted by officers at their front door later that week.

"I open up the door, and there's like eight different people, five different cars, and I'm like 'what the heck's going on?' This guy's in a suit with a mask. It's the health department guy, and they have three papers for us. For me, her and my daughter," Isaiah Linscott said.

The couple said they were fitted with ankle monitors that go off if they stray more than 200 feet from their home." (Fox 5)
Had she signed the paperwork, they would likely not be on house arrest nor fitted with ankle monitors.
And if she really had to go to a hospital, there's really nothing stopping her from going. She could technically just get in the car and go. Who or what would stop her?
