What you're suggesting is nothing more than a placebo. It may make you feel better, but it does nothing to minimize the vulnerability of those at risk. All it takes is one cough from one carrier, and that's that. The only way is to isolate those at risk. Why does this confuse you so much?
This doesn't even make sense. Do you even know what a placebo is?
Success becomes less certain when you minimize risk?
I don't know what you do for a living, but I hope it doesn't involve making decisions.

I study infectious diseases. Which is why I know what you're proposing is absurd.
In any case, since you clearly lack significant analytical thinking skills, lets go through the two scenarios.
First, the one we've tried and was working. Everybody takes part, limits public exposure by both staying home as much as possible and wearing a mask when in public. Many essential stores (grocery and drug stores for example) limit hours to give staff time to clean more and also set aside hours for the vulnerable populations to shop by themselves so that they can get their essential supplies. As many businesses as possible allowed to remain open with limited exposure of staff to customers. Again, this was working. Working so well field hospitals that were set up to soak up overflow were taken down because they were under utilized.
Now here's your proposal. A government that has been massively unresponsive to the pandemic is supposed to set up quarantine space on old military bases, complete with controlled access points, decontamination procedures and properly equipping them such that those who are moved in (voluntarily? Forced?) aren't simply living in a sterile prison. The government is now responsible for feeding, clothing and entertaining the residents as they are largely cut off from the rest of the world. Right. Because that proposal will pass the GOP Senate. The alternative is the susceptible are forced to completely self-isolate in their own homes while somehow managing to get food and supplies from somebody in a fashion that isn't going to expose them. With everybody else running around like everything is normal on the outside, there's a very high risk that the contact who's providing supplies is infectious at some point during the interactions.
God please tell me you're not making decisions either. ----.
If you can put on pajamas and a motorcycle helmet, you'll get how to don even the more complex CBRNE rated equipment.

Putting it on is only part of the process. That you think once it's on it's magic suggests you don't understand how to use it either.
