MASTER-SAAO robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in South Africa (South African Astronomical Observatory) was pointed to the Swift GRB 200519A ( B. Sbarufatti et al., GCN 27756) errorbox  23275 sec after notice time and 23295 sec after trigger time at 2020-05-19 17:48:38 UT, with upper limit up to  17.0 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 75 deg. The sun  altitude  is -25.5 deg. 

MASTER-OAFA robotic telescope  located in Argentina (OAFA observatory of San Juan National University) was pointed to the Swift GRB 200519A errorbox  46397 sec after notice time and 46416 sec after trigger time at 2020-05-20 00:14:00 UT, with upper limit up to  16.6 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 69 deg. The sun  altitude  is -31.7 deg. 

The galactic latitude b =  7 deg., longitude l = 354 deg.
