Brief Answer:
If there wasn't skin contact, very low chances.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.

If there was no skin to skin contact, the possibility of taking HPV is near zero.

If HPV infection happened, genital warts usually show after two months.

Risk can detected at least after two weeks.
