Plantar warts and taking baths...contagious?

I have one plantar wart on each foot. Getting them treated next week.
My questions:

1.We only have a bath tub now while the shower is under construction. After I take a bath is the wart virus still in the tub after it is drained?
2. Can I get warts in other places while I am soaking in the bath water itself?
3. Can my other family members get them from taking bath after me?
4. Should I bleach the tub after I get out?
5. Can they get them from the bath mat that I step on after I get out of the tub?
6. If I have my bare feet in my bed under the covers can other family get it from the blankets?

Thanks everyone!!
