COVID-19: Testing, Isolation, Geolocation in Korea

The guy in the video has just returned to Korea from abroad. He is tested right away (results by next day), and asked to self-quarantine for 2 weeks. His location is monitored via phone (GPS) during this time. During quarantine the government supplies him with food free of charge.

Systems like this make it possible to contain the epidemic without shutting down the economy. Is there any chance the US can get to this point by May?
