The same will occur during extended sideline conferences, line-to-gain measurements, while ball is being spotted between quarters at halftime and upon departing field until departing game site or school.

NHFOA members working on line-to-gain crew or as clock operator shall wear a mask at all times from arrival on game site to departure from game site.

Members working as on field officials may wear a mask during game should they wish. At this time NHFOA on field officials are not required to wear a mask during the game, other than above described situations.
