ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Students began returning to some Florida university campuses on Monday as the state reported the fewest new daily cases in more than a month.

Classes for new students started Monday at Stetson University. Students moved into dormitories over the weekend at the DeLand campus as well as at the University of Central Florida in Orlando.

In Orange County, public school students started the school year on Monday with two-weeks of online learning. At the end of the month, they will get to choose between continuing with the virtual learning or going to in-person classes.

Meanwhile, Florida reported 4,155 new coronavirus cases on Monday, the smallest daily caseload increase since the end of June.

The Sunshine State now has 536,961 total cases, and 8,408 virus-related deaths. That marked an increase of more than 90 deaths reported in Florida on Monday.
