Social distancing during breaks in play or Half Time - England Hockey COVID19 Guidance

To minimise the risk of transfer of COVID-19 during the game, if the clock is stopped for treating injuries, retrieving of ball from outside of the playing area, etc, then all individuals are to resume Social Distancing measures until the game can recommence.
Natural breaks in play (such as at Penalty Corners) do occur but umpires are encouraged to restart play promptly. The 40 second rule used at Short Corners in higher lervel competitions does not apply to South League games.

Umpiring Tip
Whilst players will be educated on this, umpires are reminded to use their voice and low-level management skills for the safety of yourself and the players in the first instance and only to resort to stricter levels of management if absolutely required.
