Omodei (Stanford Univ.) and F. Longo (University and INFN, Trieste) report on behalf of the Fermi-LAT Collaboration: We have searched data collected by the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) on February 8, 2020, for possible high-energy (E > 100 MeV) gamma-ray emission in spatial/temporal coincidence with the LIGO/Virgo trigger S200208q (GCN 27014). We define "instantaneous coverage" as the integral over the region of the LIGO probability map that is within the LAT field of view at a given time, and "cumulative coverage" as the integral of the instantaneous coverage over time. Fermi-LAT had an instantaneous coverage of ~47% of the LIGO probability at the time of the trigger (T0 = 2020-02-08 13:01:17.991 UTC), and reached 100% cumulative coverage after ~3.8 ks. We performed a search for a transient counterpart within the observed region of the 90% contour of LIGO map in a fixed time window from T0 to T0 + 10 ks. No significant new sources are found. Energy flux upper bounds for the fixed time interval between 100 MeV and 1 GeV for this search vary between 1.3e-10 and 2.5e-09 [erg/cm^2/s]. The Fermi-LAT point of contact for this event is Lorenzo Scotton (email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>). The Fermi-LAT is a pair conversion telescope designed to cover the energy band from 20 MeV to greater than 300 GeV. It is the product of an international collaboration between NASA and DOE in the U.S. and many scientific institutions across France, Italy, Japan and Sweden.
