Swift-XRT has performed follow-up observations of the GUANO-detected
burst GRB 231220A, collecting 3.6 ks of Photon Counting (PC) mode data
between T0+27.0 ks and T0+39.5 ks. 

No candidate counterpart was detected, with an upper limit of 
2.2×10-3 ct s-1 at the best BAT position (GCN 35409). 

One uncatalogued X-ray source was flagged as spurious 
after manual inspection. 

The results of the full analysis of the XRT observations are available
at https://www.swift.ac.uk/ToO_GRBs/00021638.

This circular is an official product of the Swift-XRT team.
