I know that the verb "to get" can be used in the passive voice. In addition, the verb "to be" can also be used in the active voice. "I am wearing a hat" is the active voice, while "The hat is being worn by me" is the passive voice.

Most probably to be is used as far as simple grammar is concerned.
