Can I just walk into a hospital (like Toronto General Hospital) and get tested if I have mild symptoms

I was at Toronto Gen yesterday. Unlike other hospitals and clinics and the area, they actually do accept patients that are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms. Call ahead first just to be sure. Basically after you check-in you will go through triage where they will decide whether or not you qualify for Covid-19 testing. I had a history of travel as well as some symptoms so they sent me to a new Covid-19 assessment center that has been setup adjacent to the ER. However, you will still meet with a doctor and if you do not have all 3 of the main conditions they’re looking for, you will probably not receive the swab test. It’s still the relatively early stages of this here and perhaps it will be easier to be tested in the coming days.
