Kilpatrick (Northwestern), G. Schroeder (Northwestern), W. Fong
(Northwestern), E. Berger (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 210610B (Page et al. GCN 30170) with the Atacama Large
Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA) beginning on 2021 June 11 at 06:21:02
UT (10.5 hr after the burst) at 90.5 GHz. Preliminary analysis reveals a mm
source with flux density of ~ 0.9 mJy at position:

RA (J2000) = 16:15:40.410 (+/- 0.005)
Dec (J2000) = +014:23:56.70 (+/- 0.01)

consistent with the X-ray position (Osborne et al. GCN 30189) and optical
position (Page et al., GCN 30170; Kumar et al. GCN 30174). Follow-up
observations are planned.

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