In brief: Yes

HPV is a localized issue like a wart (it's cousin).
It does not travel in the blood. There would be HPV antibodies in the blood, but these would protect, not harm a potential recipient. In a donor center you would be asked to read through information about donor exclusions.The will also usually have you answer a computer assisted quiz about infection exposure, etc.HPV is not in these questions.
