‘Jingle Bells: Let’s Stay Well’ was a campaign run by the States of Guernsey throughout November and December 2020 to encourage thorough handwashing as a key Public Health message in the fight against COVID-19.
Bailiwick of Guernsey community members were invited to participate in 20 second videos of them singing this Christmas jingle for daily Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts during the lead up to Christmas Eve.
Singing the chorus of ‘Jingle Bells’ twice takes around 20 seconds and this is the minimum amount of time it takes for handwashing to be effective which sparked the idea.
The response to this initiative was fantastic and having so many different people involved proved extremely useful in promoting a very simple message: washing your hands for at least 20 seconds protects your health, and the health of those around you.
Thank you to each and every individual and group who has been part of ‘Jingle Bells: Let’s Stay Well’
The videos are still available to view below if you would like to enjoy the #GuernseyTogether spirit.
A special thank you to Alderney’s community as 28 fantastic videos were filmed to support this campaign, coordinated by Alex Flewitt from The Channel Island Girl.
