AGILE Team:

In response to the LIGO/Virgo GW event S200311bg at T0 = 2020-03-11
11:58:53.398 (UTC), a preliminary analysis of the AGILE MCAL
and GRID data found no acquisitions around T0, due to a complete
Earth occultation of the S200311bg 90% c.l. localization region.

Additional analysis of AGILE data is in progress.
