MELISSA FRANCIS (CO-HOST): Washington's governor saying the state will be deploying workers to reach out to coronavirus patients and find out who they may have been in contact with and to warn them to self-quarantine. California is also planning to train and deploy thousands of so-called contact tracers, up to 10,000, according to Gov. Gavin Newsom. And Connecticut's governor says his state is looking into joining New York and New Jersey in a tri-state contact-tracing program. 

Now, Katie, I wanted to read exactly what these people were doing. And I have to tell you, it gave me a little pause. They said these tracers will interview infected people, identify those with whom they've come in contact, and convince those people to self-quarantine. What are they doing to convince them to self-quarantine, and what happens if you don't? I don't know, I mean, obviously you want to trace where everybody's going to be. And I understand the health importance of this. But then there’s a little -- something makes me feel a little Big Brother about this. What are your thoughts?
