MASTER-OAGH robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Mexico (OAGH National Institute for Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics) was pointed to the Swift GRB 220302A ( E. Troja et al., GCN 31661) errorbox  2514 sec after notice time and 2575 sec after trigger time at 2022-03-02 08:23:15 UT, with upper limit up to  16.6 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 87 deg. The sun  altitude  is -63.3 deg. 

The galactic latitude b =  9 deg., longitude l = 84 deg.

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:

We obtain a following upper limits.
