I-94 expired, I-797 valid, H1B - COVID-19 times
Hi, I have read some of the experiences here but none of them relate to Covid-19 times.

My situation is as follows :
- Today is July 16, 2020
- My I-94 expired on April 12, 202
- My old passport expired on April 13, 2020 (which is the reason my I-94 was only valid until April 12, 2020)
- My I-797 and My H1B Visa on my old passport dont expire until Sept 13, 2021
- My new passport got re-issued to me on Feb-18-2020, and expires on Feb-18-2030

At POE, when the latest I-94 was stamped, it was Sept 13, 2019. And my plan was: when I get a new passport, I will leave the country for a vacation sometime in 2020 and come back and get the new passport stamped and a new I-94. But Due to Covid-19 closures starting March 7 (CA), I had to abandon this plan.

As I understand I may be in violation of some sort, this is new to me, what are my options without leaving the country? I understand going to CBP may be risky??
Any advice will be very much appreciated.
