Or once you finish the campaign is the game done?

Yes. That's the selling point to a legacy game.

Per earlier comments from the designer, you can keep playing the game after the campaign completes (though this is not the focus of the game design).

To the above comment, note that this makes two out of three of Rob's Legacy games (Risk, SeaFall) that can be played more-or-less as-is and indefinitely past the end of the campaign. Firm end states are not an inherent characteristic of Legacy games.

The only selling point is that events in one game shape all future games. So far that's been through destroying game pieces (e.g. Ripping up cards), writing on maps, and placing stickers over things. Conditionally released new components are another element, as is altering the rule book itself.

I -think- those are the constants.

I think Pandemic Legacy has been the only "once and done" legacy game. So far at least (although there is a growing niche for single-campaign/play games it seems).

Also keep in mind that while the game's campaign isnt repeatable, it is expected to provide on average 15 two-hour games. I think many of us own games we still haven't gotten around to playing 15 times.

You could, but since it becomes a space pirate exploration with worker placement rpg elements game by the end, it's hard to keep playing.
