Sounds like a great idea! Let's get someone with a super-contagious illness into a building in close quarters with other people
I get the irony, but I think the article stopped short of saying 'arrest on spot and put in jail with other people'. Rather- "This can include a court order to follow treatment, remain isolated, be committed to a facility, or any other relief that the court finds proper."

Many of our loved ones don't start serving their sentences immediately. Suppose for a moment that a violator could be taken to secure quarantine and then face jail time when recovered.

Even besides this outlier scenario, I cringe at how many first responders are going to be exposed to coronavirus.
