If your initial measurements were reversed then you’d have 5.82v on the emitter of Q1

 

Take Q1 out of its socket and check the 3 socket holes don’t have continuity with each other

 

Weird measurements sometimes indicate no path to ground so check Q1 emitter has continuity with ground if not reflow the socket solder joint and re check  making sure the 3 socket holes don’t have continuity with each other
