You can water your lawn, you just can't use a sprinkler and it can't be left unattended. You can use a spray attachment to the hose and give your lawn a good soak for a few minutes. Again, just can't leave it on an auto setting/sprinkler without being there and for too long.

I missed the first watering day. My poor lawn that I put so much money and effort into is crisp and burnt now.

hose watering is not good for a lawn - encourages shallow root growth

better to cut it long (3 inches) and let it go dormant
