If you want to shop for a television, home appliance or other tech gadget in person, you will need a face mask if you want to shop at Best Buy.
A shop in Brunswick displays a collection of face masks on July 11, 2020 in Melbourne, Australia.
Gove told the BBC: "I would encourage people to wear face masks when they are inside, in an environment where they are likely to be mixing with others and where the ventilation may not be as good as it might".
Pressure mounted on the Prime Minister to change public advice following an outcry from the public and from those who work in shops feeling it is still unsafe to return to work given coronavirus is still in general circulation.
The WHO has been reluctant to commit to recommending face coverings, firstly because the evidence on whether they offer any protection to the public is limited and - more importantly - because it was afraid it would lead to shortages of medical-grade masks for health workers.
How to Watch Comet Neowise's Spectacular Show
From the middle of the month onwards, the comet will be visible all through the night but will remain low in the sky. Comet NEOWISE is hurtling close enough to the Earth to be easily visible as it streaks through our skies this month.

The British government has chose to require people to wear face coverings in shops, joining a long list of countries that have made masks mandatory under some circumstances in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Everyone else, apart from those who can not wear them for health reasons, must wear one.
People who fail to cover their face risk a fine of up to £100 ($123, 109 euros) with enforcement to be carried out by the police.
The WHO says masks should be made of three layers - with cotton closest to the face, followed by a polypropylene layer and then a synthetic layer that is fluid-resistant. Nail salons, tattoo parlors and spas are among the businesses allowed to reopen today in England as the government eases the restrictions meant to curb the spread of Covid-19.
However, although the measure will not be implemented until 24 July, the government has been criticised by senior police officers for failing to warn them in advance that it would be introduced.
Shoppers in Wales and Northern Ireland are not now required to wear them, although both nations have said this will be kept under review.
The government has confirmed that enforcement of the regulations will be the responsibility of the police.
