In brief: Depends

Lab values and their clinical implications (how it may indicate infection or disease) varies from lab to lab.
It also has different meaning based on the health and age of the patient. Most of us are infected by CMV by adulthood. CMV infection is dangerous to unborn babies and immunosuppressed (on chemotherapy) or immunocompromised (HIV) patients where it can cause brain @ retina (eye) infections.
