Jerusalem Post – Chief Sephardic Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef sent Health Minister Yaakov Litzman a ruling of Jewish law on Wednesday, calling on people to leave their phones on during Shabbat. “There is no doubt that all those tested for coronavirus have to have a phone on during Shabbat so [the Health Ministry] will be able to update him on his results and tell him where to evacuate,” Yosef said.

“Even one who did not get tested should leave his phone on, so he would be able to be briefed in case it is discovered that he was near a confirmed carrier.”
