Q. Can I leave on my computer during Shabbat, without sound just to read if any emergencies are happening with the coronavirus pandemic?
A. Horrav Shlomo Miller’s opinion is that at this point in time (3/28/20) there is no reason to leave on a computer screen or any other such news display during Shabbos, and it should be avoided. This is specially important in times when we need the Shabbos protection for all ailments.
