In brief: Direct contact
Usually prolonged direct contact with a genital wart or a contaminated surface (fomite) can transfer the virus and start an infection.
With early treatment of a solitary lesion, the risk of spread can be reduced or eliminated.

In brief: Spread from hands
Regular warts on the hands could spread to the genitals.
They are both caused by a similar virus.
