Most universities are on holiday break now and begin teaching in a couple of weeks. So, don't expect a reply until then. The journal's webpage usually has an expected time frame, I think it 3-6 weeks is normal for the editor's decision at passing an article onto peer review or desk-rejecting it.

Ah, good, congratulations! If you had minor revisions from peer-review than it's most likely a pass and awaiting decision is a formality that they'll do once the semester is back in session. If the journal does online publishing ahead of print, then you'll get a decision on the date it'll be available online.

Regardless of whether it has had minor corrections or not, it can and often does take 6 to 8 weeks.
It could also be just a few days.
Be patient. You cannot control the pace of this. It will sort itself out in due course.
