I used to work for Kaiser; I don't know about that particular hospital but they probably only have two rooms set aside for quarantine and they
certainly don't have any rooms that are biocontainment level IV; if those tests happened to come back positive, you can expect wholesale panic on the
part of the staff, and not just on the one floor, either. I wonder what they're doing about food trays, linens, etc..
This is how it starts; people read about the symptoms in the news, start coming down with something (or not, a healthy hypochondriac can be pretty
convincing with symptom fantasies) and they start coming into the ER; at some point, you've got more 'possibles' then you have room for, and all the
people crying wolf may mean someone who is really sick doesn't get taken seriously.
Rinse, repeat. Even no real outbreak is a nightmare. You have no idea how close to overwhelmed any given hospital is on a normal day.
Edit to add, I found this: room pressure monitor equipment
