Does anyone have any nice examples of nudges being used to promote handwashing behaviour during the pandemic? I have seen lots of great examples of nudges being used to cue physical distancing behaviours but not much for handwashing.

Where am I?

Hi Sian

One nudge that I noticed in several countries is that communication companies replace the "bell" sound of phones by messages on handwashing. As many people are commenting on it - and hearing it every time they make a call - I suppose it's pretty impactful, but haven't seen any numbers/evaluation on it.
