In brief: Past EBV infection

The presence of igg to the ebv capsule means that your body was exposed at some time in the past to ebv and made antibodies against it.
It is at its highest level 2-3 months after the initial infection, and it will always be present. An elevated igm level would be consistent with current/recent infection.
