We observed the field of GRB 190427A (Tohuvavohu, et al., GCN 24261)
with the Reionization and Transients Infrared Camera (RATIR; on the 1.5m Harold Johnson Telescope at the Observatorio
Astronomico Nacional on Sierra San Pedro Martir from 2019/04 27.28 to
2019/04 27.30 UTC (2.22 to 2.53 hours after the BAT trigger), obtaining
a total of 0.20 hours exposure in the r and i bands and 0.06 hours
exposure in the Z, Y, J, and H bands.

In comparison with the SDSS DR9 catalog, we detect no new source brighter
than r~22 AB mag within the BAT error circle.

We thank the staff of the Observatorio Astron��mico Nacional in San Pedro
