With this Covid-19 pandemic in full swing and police illegally writing citations, what are my rights if I am illegally stopped and the officer is not maintaining our social distancing? In theory the officer could potentially be putting my life in danger by being a host of the the Covid-19.
If you are illegally stopped by the police, any subsequent action against you may be overturned on appeal. You have the right to remain silent, and the right to refuse a search, though if you are arrested, that trumps your desire to not be searched. (That's for a personal search, a warrant would be needed to search your vehicle, though). However, you do not have the right to resist arrest if you feel that a stop, citation or arrest is illegal. The is true with or without a pandemic. You suggest that officers are violating the governor's orders regarding "social distancing", but don't explain in what way and how that bears on an interaction with you. Here is the March 19 order, and this is March 31. You should note that law enforcement is an essential service. You should also note that the orders distinguish between recommendations and actual orders (look for "should" = recommendation versus "shall" = order).
