How long would a location have to be quarantined to form a functional society?

Assuming disparate groups of people live within an indefinitely quarantined area, and initially have a vague notion of someday rejoining the rest of the world, how long would it take for people to decide the “indefinite quarantine” has gone on long enough that they need to plan for the future?

Is there anthropological precedent for this?
