my wife saw on the news last night that they are requiring landscrapers to wash there equipment with soap and water between jobs in affected areas that are pretty close to me "utility and lawn-care workers will be required to decontaminate at least their shoes and their equipment with heavy-duty soap before entering and exiting a grove or back yard."

Sounds like a pita. Also a potential problem if one of your customers becomes infected-would they point a finger at you?
If you have customers with citrus you may want to start an information campaign telling them what you are doing to avoid problems.
Only thing close to that I run into is needing to disinfect tools while working on diseased tree.
