CDC sent out an email about testing: Data to date show that a person who has had and recovered from COVID-19 may have low levels of virus in their body for up to 3 months after diagnosis. This means that if the person who has recovered is retested within 3 months of initial infection, they may continue to have a positive test result, even though they are not spreading COVID-19. Also according to their website, the virus may be shed for 20 days, thus the reason for wearing a mask to prevent spread.
