COVID 19 testing: That will be up to you. You can complete quarantine as required in South Africa- or possibly get tested. However, in ZA, testing might not be approved if asymptomatic.

See below: Covid-19: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html Contact your doctor/local hospital, by phone for evaluation and testing in your area. Wear a mask, stay away from others, practice hand hygiene. If you develop breathing difficulty, go to the nearest hospital, immediately. Get Covid vaccine. Wish you good health.
