I have a question can I get covid 19 again after having it once

Hello @neverlosefaith07 and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I understand you are wondering if you are able to contract COVID-19 after you have tested positive.

I am not a medical professional, however, was able to find some very new research that has come out of the U.K. that you might find helpful as well as a podcast from October 2020 that may provide some additional insights.

How long ago did you test positive?
