We observed the field of GRB 210527A (Laha, et al., GCN 30081) with the
Reionization and Transients Infrared Camera (RATIR) on the 1.5m Harold
Johnson Telescope at the Observatorio Astron��mico Nacional on Sierra San
Pedro M��rtir from 2021/05 27.30 to 2021/05 27.32 UTC (0.01 to 0.56 hours
after the BAT trigger), obtaining a total of 0.19 hours exposure in the r
and i bands and 0.25 hours exposure in the Z, Y, J, and H bands.

We find no new sources within the refined XRT error region (Evans, et al.,
GCN 30083).   In comparison with the SDSS DR9 and 2MASS catalogs, we obtain
the following upper limits (3-sigma):

  r     > 21.67
  i     > 21.70
  Z     > 21.54
  Y     > 21.32
  J     > 20.78
  H     > 20.42

These magnitudes are in the AB system and are not corrected for Galactic
extinction in the direction of the GRB.

We thank the staff of the Observatorio Astron��mico Nacional in San Pedro
M��rtir.
