Could anyone please help me interpret my HSV 1 (36.2) & HSV 2 (5.56) test results?

It's been a while since I had blood work and I recently received my results. Everything was negative but the HSV 1 & 2. Any help interpreting the results would be most appreciated.

Observations: HSV 1 IgG, Type Spec 1
result: 36.20
reference/Uom: 0.00-0.90 index Above high normal

Vendor note:
Negative 1.09
Note: Negative indicates no antibodies detected to
HSV-1. Equivocal may suggest early infection. If
clinically appropriate, retest at later date. Positive
indicates antibodies detected to HSV-1.

Both of these results are positive for both HSV1 and HSV2. The HSV1 index is a well established infection. HSV2 is a little more difficult to determine. It could be a long standing infection but more than likely at least 3 months old. Let us know if you have more questions.
