N. P. M. Kuin (UCL-MSSL) and M. G. Bernardini (INAF-OAB)
report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of
GRB 200425A 94 s after the BAT trigger (Bernardini et al.,
GCN Circ. 27638). No optical afterglow consistent with the
XRT position (Bernardini et al. GCN Circ. 27638)is detected
 in the initial UVOT exposures. Preliminary 3-sigma upper
limits using the UVOT photometric system (Breeveld et al.
2011, AIP Conf. Proc. 1358, 373) for the first finding chart (FC)
exposure and subsequent exposures are:

The magnitudes in the table are not corrected for the Galactic extinction
due to the reddening of E(B-V) = 0.16 in the direction of the burst
(Schlegel et al. 1998).
