Made me laugh!

Most absurd is that gargling with bleach prevents this...you'd be better off drinking alcohol!

Joking aside, seriously, do not drink bleach.

Very true....or many of the tests still are not rapidly giving responses. There is a chance that patient could have contracted the virus between the timing of submitting and sample and receiving their result. Someone who tests negatively might contract the infection the next day

Although there is a complex answer to this question, the simple answer is that viruses mutate and can re-infect patients. But this is a hard process to predict.

Do you/anyone know of a process for doing so? I'd like to know, I would feel good about volunteering.

Short answer: The projection from the cdc is months.

Longer answer: Those who haven't had it aren't immune to it. And, the scary thing is that virologists don't even know the answer to this question.
