TG-5 can you adjust focus during video recording

The manual focus and focus lock functions of the TG-5 are well documented but what is not documented is whether in manual focus or focus lock mode you can adjust the focus during a video recording, eg by using the wheel or arrows. Or for that matter, whether you can force a re-focus / disable and re-enable the focus lock during video recording?

Reason I ask is that I'm well aware of the poor continuous AF during video, and being able to override focus in video by either manual adjustment or by locking focus and just re-focusing during recording when the subject depth changes significantly may be a way around this.
