What are my rights with my co-signer and landlord?

Long Story: Mid December my housemate (who we will call Karen) tells me she is trying to leave the apartment we have in Brooklyn to be closer to her apartment in Manhattan. She has a really long commute and works long hours so this makes sense. She tells me she wants to be out by early January. As a result she has already posted on FB and is looking for someone to take over her lease – and pay Jan rent. Keep in mind my Grandmother died literally two days before she told me this and I will be going home for the holidays in three days. I have concerns about a new housemate especially it being rushed. I’m concerned about Covid because I have asthma and have had lung problems in the past. I want to properly look at these people before choosing one. I’m curious what my rights as a cotent and co-signer of our lease. The lease says we both have a financial obligation to pay. Can she just find someone to replace her without consulting me?
