My blood test came back positive for three types of coxsackie virus. Does this usually mean past or present infection?

In brief: Coxsackie

Although your description is difficult to interpret it sounds like you have antibodies to coxsackie virus strains and whether or not this is old depends upon whether these are igm or igg antibodies and whether in 14 day repeat specimens the titers are rising or staying the same.
It also depends upon whether you are symptomatic in any way. Talk to your doctor.
