You may be able to get unemployment coverage when you quit for health reasons so long as you can establish good cause. As you know, in most circumstances, when you quit a job, you are not eligible for unemployment. Under the present circumstances, based on what you have shared with me, I think you have a good to very good shot at establishing "good cause" and receiving coverage.
These are factors in "good cause", traditionally speaking:
1) You left work primarily because of the illness, disability, or death.
(2) Your illness or disability, or the illness, disability, or death of your immediate family member made it necessary for you to quit.
(3) Before quitting, you exhausted all reasonable alternatives to quitting, including telling your employer about your condition (or the condition of your immediate family member) and any special modifications that you might need to continue working. If you need special modifications, you may need to provide a doctor’s note that outlines the necessary modifications.
You have taken these measures and are in good position to receive unemployment, based on what you have shared with me.
