"Quarantine" in context

Quarantines are temporary measures used in response to a public health threat. They involve both physical and/or travel restrictions and are implemented to prevent the spread of a communicable disease.

The first instance of a pandemic quarantine was during the 14th century in Europe, where ships carrying infected people were barred from entering foreign ports. The practice of quarantining people who may be infected with a contagious disease has been around for centuries, but it's still controversial today.

Most countries, if not all, have quarantine policies and laws in place that are designed to slow down the spread of an infectious disease.
