The field covering the newly discovered Soft Gamma Repeater SGR 1833-0832 (Gelbord, J. et al. 2010, GCN #10526) was observed with Chandra ACIS-S starting on 2009 February 13 10:50:20 UT for 8 ks. There is no point source detected within the best Swift XRT error circle (Evans et al. 2010, GCN #10530). Employing spectral parameters reported by Gelbord et al. (2010, GCN #10531), we obtain a 2-sigma upper limit to the unabsorbed flux as 3.4E-13 erg/cm^2/s.
