# 2666 In Camera On Camera

Q. An elderly person confined to his home, used to have a male attendant taking care of his needs, for a few hours a day. Due to the virus crisis, he quit, and now the only available help is a woman. He is very concerned for the issues of yichud with her. Is it permitted that while she is with him, he should turn on his phone and call a friend while the phone camera is on, so the friend can check on him from time to time?
Is that permitted equally in other situations of yichud, such as an office, for men and for women also?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that it is permitted in both cases. See similar questions 346, 828, 2469 and 2252.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller Shlit’a
