If your son was going to have symptoms from COVID 19, he would have done so as incubation period is usually around 2 to 14 days but I am not sure of South African policy . The majority of doctors viewing your questions are located in USA. Our policies/ protocols may differ from yours. I refer you to “https://sacoronavirus.co.za/” which is the COVID 19 South African Corona Virus Resource Portal.
