Default Can I ban Chinese tourists from store because of the wuhan virus

I want to ban all mainland Chinese tourists from entering my store because of the wuhan infection health crisis. And as of today I currently ask all Chinese looking people that they provide ID before they enter.

Because of the global crisis is this legal?

You're being discriminatory. Just because they look Chinese doesn't mean they're virus carriers. I hope your business lose money.

What does their ID supposedly tell you?

Chinese looking? Wow you are really asking for a lawsuit there my friend. It’s called racial profiling, look it up.

Just in case you haven't put it together yet, I'm going to put it to you bluntly.

No. That is not legal.

The Civil Rights Act forbids discrimination based upon an individual's birthplace, ancestry, culture, linguistic characteristics (common to a specific group) or accent. It also applies to individuals married to or associated with persons of a particular national origin, membership or association with specific ethnic promotion groups, attendance or participation in schools, churches, temples, or mosques associated with a national original group, or a surname associated with a national origin group.
