14. The environment is not safe.

I wouldn't presume to tell you to find another job because I don't know your circumstances.

However, I can tell you that I would not go in, and I would look for work somewhere safer.

I'm not rich, and I need money like everyone does, but if I get Covid, I could have a real problem (even though I'm double dosed) because I have a lot of the classic risk factors, including kidney disease.

Try to imagine a scale, like a justice scale, and weigh out the risks of staying vs. the risks of leaving.

You will come the the right answer for you personally.
