With the $\sim 1$~fb$^{-1}$ of data expected in the 2011-12 run, LHCb will achieve the world's best sensitivity to the very rare decay $B_s to \mu^+\mu^-$, exploring a regime where many models of New Physics predict a signal, and reaching down towards the Standard Model value for the branching ratio. Results will be presented from data collected in 2010, and from the early months of the 2011 run.
