In brief: Not from EBV virus
Mono is caused by the ebv virus.
Once a person catches ebv, it seems to stay in one's body, and can re-activate to cause mono-like symptoms more than once. Re-activation is sort of like being re-infected by one's own virus, but it is not a true re-infection by an outside virus. Occasionally, other germs can cause a "mono-like" illness.
