You probably know in your heart what you want to do. If you are leaning toward leaving, but not committed yet, you may want to talk to whomever who have to at that workplace to see if you can possibly separated or otherwise protected. What I'm really realizing during this pandemic is that there may not be a soul in this world who is worried about your protection (I mean besides family and close friends).

Because of this, you have to be vigilant and assertive, perhaps even aggressive in advocating for yourself.

I'm sorry you are in this situation, but I'm confident that you will come up with the right solution. Regardless, it's a very difficult situation and I wish you all the best.
