The BBC is reporting that people in Wales must wear masks in shops and other indoor spaces from Monday, according to the First Minister.
Mark Drakeford said the change came as 20 people in every 100,000 in Wales now had coronavirus.
Indoor meetings of more than six people from an extended household will be illegal from Monday.
The rule will not apply to children aged 11 and under. Up to 30 people from different homes can still meet outside.
Mr Drakeford said: "Today for the first time we will go to a point where 20 people in 100,000 are suffering from coronavirus in Wales.
"That is the threshold we use for people to have to quarantine coming back into the UK.
"And having reached that today, we will be making the use of face coverings mandatory in shops and in closed public spaces in Wales."
He said if the figure fell, the advice could be re-examined.
