If you are sealing block paving with a solvent based sealer, carry on to get a quick 1st coat on to keep the sand dry, anything else just stop and go back when it is dry. You may find the sealer has gone cloudy when you return. If so spray with solvent which will remove the clouding and then finish applying the sealer.
