In a press release posted a few hours after the Twitter statement, Police said they had made arrests at Queen's Park and Yonge & Dundas Square.

Those two locations have been popular spots for anti-lockdown protests for the past 10 months in Toronto.

TPS said officers arrested five people and laid charges of "Common Nuisance," "Obstruct Police," and "Fail To Comply With Undertaking."

Six other charges were also laid against people for not complying with the stay-at-home order.

"While we recognize the right to lawful protest, the existing emergency orders prohibit large gatherings of more than five people," said the TPS in a statement posted to Twitter.

A spokesperson for Toronto Police told Narcity that enhanced enforcement could mean more officers at the large gatherings to speak to people and give out tickets.
