If a user leaves a private room, do they have to be reinvited?

No. If they close the private room, they are still members of it and can open it back up any time they want and all conversation that happened while they were away will be visible to them. While they have the room closed or while they are offline, they will get atAll notifications but not atHere notifications. They can also be mentioned specifically in the room at any time.
