No, other nodes in the cluster will still be sending reads to the node.

The key thing is that unless you're willing to accept the node serving
reads with incorrect data, you need the node to initiate a normal
bootstrapping process whereby it starts taking writes as it is
bootstrapping, but won't take reads until it's done. This requires
that other nodes know that it is joining the ring; if you just pop it
back in they won't know that.
