British Columbia's top doctor has a message for people who don't follow a provincial order to wear a mask in indoor public spaces: order takeout, shop online or stay home.

Dr. Bonnie Henry says she's saddened after hearing about store and restaurant employees facing aggressive customers who refuse to wear masks as COVID-19 numbers rise.

The RCMP say they arrested a shopper at a Walmart in Dawson Creek this week after he allegedly assaulted an employee who asked him to wear a mask.

Henry says B.C. set another single-day record with 911 cases of COVID-19.

There have been a total of 30,884 diagnosed cases in the province.

Eleven more people have died, bringing the number of fatalities to 395, while a record 301 patients are in hospital.
