The Swift/UVOT began taking data on the field of GRB060319 at
00:58:02 on 2006-03-19, 139 s after the BAT trigger (Ziaeepour et
al., GCN 4885). In the initial 100 s White filter image no new
source is detected at the XRT position (Kennea et al., GCN 4886)
down to a 3-sigma magnitude upper limit of 20.6. No source is
detected in summed images from any of the filters down to the
following 3-sigma upper limits.
