report on behalf of the MAXI team:

We examined MAXI/GSC all-sky X-ray images (2-20 keV) 
after Fermi GBM-190816 at 2019-08-16 21:22:14.563 UTC (GCN 25406).

At the trigger time of Fermi GBM-190816, the high-voltage of MAXI/GSC was on,
but the FOV was out of the 90% credible region of GBM-190816-with-LV-v1 skymap.
The first one-orbit (92 min) scan observation with GSC after the event covered 86% 
of the 90% credible region of the skymap from 21:27:25 to 22:54:10 UTC (T0+312 to T0+5517 sec).

No significant new source was found in the region in the one-orbit scan observation.
A typical 1-sigma averaged upper limit obtained in one scan observation
is 20 mCrab at 2-20 keV.

If you require information about X-ray flux by MAXI/GSC at specific coordinates,
please contact the submitter of this circular by email.
