Lemma 72.10.4. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $X$ be an algebraic space over $S$ and let $G$ be a finite group acting freely on $X$. Set $Y = X/G$ as in Properties of Spaces, Lemma 66.34.1. For $y \in |Y|$ the following are equivalent

  1. $y$ is in the schematic locus of $Y$, and

  2. there exists an affine open $U \subset X$ containing the preimage of $y$.

Proof. It follows from the construction of $Y = X/G$ in Properties of Spaces, Lemma 66.34.1 that the morphism $X \to Y$ is surjective and ├ętale. Of course we have $X \times _ Y X = X \times G$ hence the morphism $X \to Y$ is even finite ├ętale. It is also surjective. Thus the lemma follows from Decent Spaces, Lemma 68.10.3. $\square$
