CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s nearly 15-month state of emergency will end Friday night.

Gov. Chris Sununu first declared a state of emergency because of the coronavirus pandemic on March 13, 2020. He renewed it every three weeks until two weeks ago, when he indicated he would let it expire June 11 at midnight.

He said Thursday the state will operate under a “public health incident” model to continue managing vaccinations, but in general, a declared emergency is no longer necessary.

Sununu thanked public health officials as well as citizens for volunteering during the pandemic, getting vaccinated and balancing safety with maintaining a strong economy.
