The spurious, reduced by the ratio of the 50 ohm source impedance, to the output impedance of 0.7 ohms of the amp (-18 dB) appears at the inverting input . . .

Reverse isolation is highest if one uses a non inverting amplifier
rather than an inverting one.
The signal at the inverting input is coupled to the non inverting input
via the differential input impedance (predominately capacitive) of the
ie finite input stage current gain and emitter base (along with package
strays) capacitances are the principal contributors at least for
frequencies where the input stage output voltage swing is small.
