Nothing other than what I do now. That is, whether you know of someone who's HIV positive or not you should take the same basic precautions.

Uncomfortable? Maybe you should just give them a leper's bell...

As I said before, the CDC rates the chance of transmission during sporting activities as extremely low. There's no reason to treat anybody differently, just take reasonable precautions - the ones that you should be taking anyway.
