Police have been door knocking houses in southwest Sydney amid fears another violent anti-lockdown rally could erupt again in the city on Saturday.
The blitz across locked-down areas of Sydney occurred as taxi and rideshare companies were instructed by NSW Police to refuse transport to anyone wanting to travel into the central business district tomorrow unless they had a hospital emergency.
Social media pages have flagged more action on Saturday, a week after 3,500 demonstrators, many from locked-down council areas, marched from Victoria Park towards Town Hall.
So far, 61 people have been charged with disobeying a public health order on July 24.
NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller on Friday warned 1,000 officers would be deployed to confront any protesters on Saturday.
On Saturday morning, an exclusion zone will be set up around the city from Milsons Point on the Lower North Shore to Zetland in the south, Darling Point in the east and Camperdown in the inner west, banning taxi drivers from taking passengers.
From 9am to 3pm on Saturday, passengers will only be allowed into the city if they have an appointment or an emergency requiring treatment at St Vincent's Hospital in Darlinghurst or Royal Prince Alfred in Camperdown.
