In brief: Chances are low
But not 100% safe. Also condom should not be loose.

Still possible.
Condoms are very effextive for prevention of stds and pregnancy , but that assumes correct use and non-breakage... Also some stds like hpv only require skin to skin contact so other body parts touching still put you at risk, albeit a low risk.

Remember there are twelve STDs that commonly affect men and women in the U.S. It is wise to know what you need to know about each one; What ones can be vaccinated for, etc.
