storing viruses

I recently read an article that contained this line: "The virus should be
stored at a constant six degrees centigrade, the ideal temperature for
keeping the virus static, neither dying nor growing." (It was in a novel.)

Does this make sense? Can viruses be made "static" in that sense? At that
temerature? How ARE viruses stored for research?

If you can help me understand this subject more, please e-mail me. Thank you.
