In brief: If wasn't infected
A person who was exposed but was not infected with the virus will not have immunity.
Infected persons, with or without symptoms, mostly recover without complications and have immunity against re-infection. Kids get a rash, mild fever, and/or mild cold symptoms. Adults get a rash, some joint aches, and/or joint swelling. The virus is spread from person to person just like colds are spread.
