This is a dispute recorded in Shulchan Aruch O.C. 8:14: אם פשט טליתו אפילו היה דעתו לחזור ולהתעטף בו מיד צריך לברך כשיחזור ויתעטף בו הגה וי"א שאין מברכין אם יהיה דעתו לחזור ולהתעטף בו וי"א דוקא כשנשאר עליו טלית קטן והכי נוהגין [R.

If one removes the tallit or tzitzit (for instance, if one needs to use the restroom during prayers), with the intention of donning the same tallit or tzitzit afterwards, then it is not necessary to recite the blessing again when putting it back on. https://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/530194/jewish/Do-I-Make-a-Second-Blessing-if-I-Took-Off-...
