How to best handle mysql requests in a deno webserver

I’m trying to make a mysql-based webapp based in Deno/Drash. A request comes in – it needs await a response from an sql query that is based on the path parameter – and then respond. When I try to await the query in the GET function it complains that I can’t await in there (which makes sense) – is the best practice to then make the GET() function async?
