Covering up vinyl floor in basement

Hi Folks,

I have a house built in 1968 and in the basement the floor is covered with 12X12 vinyl tile.

I had sent the sample for asbestos testing and it came back negative for tile itself however the black mastic on the tile has 6% asbestos.

My questions are
  1. What is the best way to cover the floor? - the floor is in good condition overall except few tile which are chipped and cracked.
  2. Should I paint the floor (so that it encapsulates the material) and then cover it with floating vinyl floor or some other product? 3.if I were to go for floting floor then I will face problem with slop since there is a drain in the center, how would I deal with slop for laying floating floor?
Thank you in advance.
