The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that it is not yet known if people who recover from COVID-19 are immune or if they can get infected again. The CDC and other partners are investigating to determine if a person can get sick with COVID-19 more than once. Until more is known, the CDC recommends continuing to take steps to protect yourself and others.
