None announced, but Mr. Gerstenmaier is due to be interviewed some time during the ISS Update hour at 11 am Eastern.  I believe Mr. Byerly said he would be at the PAO console with Dan Huot.

I missed it, did this interview happen?

Yes, right at the top.  (The update hour gets replayed on TV multiple times and usually those interviews are posted on the ReelNASA YT channel.)

Yep, it looks like a Draeger tube chemical air sampler.  I was on the ARS team that designed that stuff and all the vestibule fittings waaaaay back in The Day.  ;)

15 minutes for pressure equalization.

20 minute clock starts after installing duct (Step 8) where no ingress allowed.

45 minutes after hatch open, allowed ingress with PPE.

Air quality monitoring has started.
