Why is my EM5ii so often switching to the EVF? (Dust?)

I'm used to the switching that happens from screen-viewing to viewfinder-viewing when I bring the camera close or let a shadow fall over it. It happens seemingly totally erratically now, including  sometimes an instant after I turn the camera on. I have swabbed the EVF window with a Q-tip, since I noticed dust and I thought that could be a cause. It didn't work perfectly, but since I didn't get it perfectly clean and since it dusted up again quickly, I couldn't tell if it made this erratic problem less frequent. Meanwhile, it seems to me I may have a static electricity issue with my EVF window, and I wonder if there's some cleaning method people use that prevents it. Thanks for any advice!
