The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued updated guidance Friday that said that people who have had the coronavirus carry antibodies that should protect them from a recurrence for at least three months.

The guidance came in updated public recommendations about who needs to quarantine

“People who have tested positive for Covid-19 do not need to quarantine or get tested again for up to three months as long as they do not develop symptoms again,” the center said. “People who develop symptoms again within three months of their first bout of Covid-19 may need to be tested again if there is no other cause identified for their symptoms.”

This is the first time that such guidance has been released.

“There is no evidence to date of any reinfection within 90 days of the initial diagnosis,” said a CDC spokesman speaking to reporters.
