Face masks in shops to be mandatory in Wales

People in Wales must wear face masks in shops and other indoor public spaces from Monday, the first minister has announced.

Mark Drakeford said the change came as 20 people in every 100,000 in Wales now had coronavirus.

Indoor meetings of more than six from an extended household will be illegal from Monday.

The rule will not apply to children under 11 and up to 30 people from different homes can still meet outside.

Mr Drakeford said the rate of 20 people in 100,000 was the "threshold we use for people to have to quarantine coming back into the UK".

He said if the figure fell, the advice on face masks could be looked at again.

The new mask rule was coming in from Monday to give people time to buy them and Mr Drakeford said he was "confident" people would follow the new rules.

Masks were not "some sort of magic wand" but "a sensible addition to the precautionary measures we are taking" to avert a crisis.
