Coronavirus & NFC device to avoid hand to mouth exposure

One of the leading problems of exposure to bacteria and viruses is through hand to mouth contact. Can this technology be used to activate a sensor (possibly in the form of a necklace) that would trigger the user that their hands are nearing the vicinity of their mouth? This is a habitual problem that averages 3-5 times of exposure every hour. Besides hand washing it seems we need more to avoid exposure.

@david-verbeck Nice idea David! Unfortunately it's unlikely this would work effectively using NFC, as you'd need to be really close to the reader to register (< 4cm). You'd then also need to have a powered reader around your neck also.
