The Australian Department of Health prohibits large public gatherings due to the risk of spreading COVID-19, particularly amid a second outbreak in Sydney's southwest. 

The NSW Police Force said it is aware of a protest scheduled for Saturday in Sydney's CBD.

Police said no paperwork has been submitted to hold a protest, and warned attendees they would not have authorisation due to public health and safety risks.  

South Australia Police confirmed they were aware of plans to protest outside the Adelaide cenotaph this weekend.  

'Sufficient police resources will be provided to ensure a peaceful protest is held, to minimise traffic disruptions and that the safety of all members of the community is maintained,' a spokesperson said.

'We strongly encourage people to practise physical distancing of 1.5 metres wherever and whenever possible.'

The planned demonstrations come just five days after a handful of people turned up to a 'freedom rally' in Melbourne.

Up to 400 people were expected to kick off the illegal protest on the steps of Parliament on Sunday, but most of the people who vowed to protest never showed up.

No more than 30 people arrived and of those, seven were arrested.

Six people were arrested because they refused to provide their personal details to police, but were later released with a $1,652 fine after they complied.
