Depends what you have in mind. Steve's suggestion sends
mail being quarantined to a dedicated mailbox.

If instead of a single central mailbox serving as a global quarantine
you'd prefer messages being delivered to each recipient or to a
per-subdomain main address, you'd choose some form of tagging
(like adding an address extension, of filtering on an X-Amavis-Alert
header field), and let infected mail be delivered:
  $final_virus_destiny = D_PASS;
