In 19th century England they paid people to quarantine if they had smallpox. It made quarantine more reliable.

I think you need both - positive and negative reinforcement. There are going to be many people not wanting to admit minor symptoms or undergo tests if it means not being able to work and possible hefty fines. So I think they should give 5kd awards per day to people who are observing quarantine properly.
