(Harvard), R. Margutti (Northwestern), C. G. Mundell (University of Bath),
and P. Schady (University of Bath) report on behalf of a larger
collaboration:

"We observed GRB 191221B (Laha et al. GCN 26534) with the Atacama Large
Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA) beginning on 2019 December 22 at
07:43:55 UT (11.1 hr after the burst) at 97.5 GHz under good weather
conditions. Preliminary analysis reveals a bright (S/N > 300) mm source at
position:

10:19:19.225 (+/- 0.005), -38:09:27.45 (+/- 0.01)

consistent with the X-ray position (Beardmore et al. GCN 26540) and optical
position (Lipunov et al., GCN 26537). Follow-up observations are planned.

We thank the JAO staff, AoD, P2G, and the entire ALMA team for their help
with these observations."
