Quantitative survey on the users’ perception of the innovative “Drive & Walk”, drive-through screening centre at the Grenoble Alpes university hospital

Abstract : As a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic, international and French health organisations are calling for large-scale screening of contacts people and symptomatic people in spring 2020, in order to diagnose positive people early, isolate !hem, and break the transmission chains of the Sars-Cov-2 virus. ln this context, a "Drive & Walk" screening centre was set up at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Grenoble Alpes (CHUGA) from 11 May to 18 June 2020. Il allowed the entire screening process to be carried out without users getting out of their vehicles; a section was also provided for pedestrians. The aim of our study was to assess the perception of the users of this centre at the CHUGA. lt was based on a questionnaire collecting users' characteristics and their perception of this large-scale screening centre. During the 6 weeks of opening, the Drive & Walk screened 690 people, ofwhom 578 agreed to participate. Participants had a median age of 35 years and a sex ratio of 0.87. 70% of users were symptomatic with an average duration of symptoms of 3 days. Their perception of the centre is strongly positive, with 95.4% of users considering the opening of a centre like the "Drive & Walk" to be a good thing. We find that 18.4% of users would not have done the test in a more classic laboratory. Furthermore, 83.7% of users agree with large-scale testing. We did not observe a significant association between users' perceptions and their age, gender or symptoms. Our study shows that this exceptional system was well received by its users, despite ils unprecedented nature, and in a global crisis situation. ln the event of a future need, il will therefore be possible to have again to implement "Drive & Walk" systems.
