Face masks in shops to be mandatory in Wales

First Minister Mark Drakeford has set out changes to the coronavirus regulations in Wales announcing that people in Wales must wear face masks in shops and other indoor public spaces from Monday 14 September 2020, but they would not be mandatory in workplaces.

Indoor meetings of more than six from an extended household will be illegal from Monday 14 September 2020.

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

The new restriction will apply in pubs and restaurants, as well as private homes.

Face coverings: guidance for public can be found here.
