Not sure what world you're living in. In the real world, if your local hairdresser can get out of bed without hacking a lung out, she's slapping on a face mask and going to work because otherwise she doesn't have money for groceries this week. In the real world, manufacturing (and food processing plants) tell people to stay home if they're sick--right up until production slowdowns start to hit profits and then it's 'don't ask, don't tell' and we won't have to lay you off. In the real world, plenty of people who've exposed to COVID get on a plane every day, and no one is (or really can) checking to make sure that doesn't happen.
Yeah, if you have a salaried job at a big corporation like Google then your legitimately told to go home (or stay home) and quarantine for the full recommended time span. And maybe some states are actually applying strict rules. But that's definitely not the case in Texas. And while the NBA is full of millionaires (and billionaires when we include the owners), the NBA itself is like an hourly worker--if they don't play games, the league doesn't have income.
