In brief: Hopefully nothing

Leakage around the condom or rupture of the condom may well result in the person who is not infected becoming so.
During acute outbreaks the lesions are often uncomfortable enough to preclude much sexual activity, but if not, condoms will generally minimize the risk. Nonetheless it would be preferable to wait until these lesions have healed over.

In brief: Sex with condom on

You mean you use a condom while having sex.
If you are having an outbreak of herpes, the best is no sex, as there is little chance of condom breakind or getting infected during foreplay.But if you have to have sex then judicious use of condom, no aral sex, careful foreplay will prevent transmission of the virus.
