ΔE⋅Δt⩾ℏ/2

Does the energy time uncertainty principle imply that an object would have to stay for an infinite amount of time in a state for there to be no uncertainty in the energy of that state?

Strictly speaking, that is correct. Although things could be thought to have difinite energy for practical purposes.
